Take To The Skies - Poem by Harlequinn Gaunt
This is a poem i wrote about a close friend who died of Leukimia.
I struggled to put my feeling and events into words, but i had a shot.
This happening is still very close to my heart.
I Love you julian, but i guess they thought it was time to go. †
Always and forever.
He lay on the bed, as white as the sheets.
Silently listening to his weak heart beats.
The wires are tubes surrounded his skin, slowly, almost pleasantly, strangling him.
His body just ached, and craved this relief.
He summoned me to his side, and asked for belief.
I nodded my head, and looked into his eyes.
The joy and the laughter and taken to the skies.
Those eyes were empty and bore no smiles.
He asked if I would help him,
I nodded my head, yes.
he said the way I would help him, was to condemn him to death.
I looked at him in horror,
my eyes filled with tears.
I couldn’t end the person I had adored for years.
But I made him a promise, many months ago.
If he should come to this, I would help him let go.
I cried in silence, and lay beside him on the bed.
He told me he loved me, and he’d never forget.
I held his thin body in m arms for some time.
We said we loved each other, and I felt him twitch.
I kissed him on the forehead, and flicked the switch.
The lights went out, and the oxygen pump spat.
The heart beat stopped, and the green line went flat.
He slept with a smile and a truth in his eyes,
As he joined his joy and laughter, and took to the skies.
