Fiction Friday – Some Poetry

All I could do…

Is sit there and watch as my life fell away from me.
Like trying to hold sunshine in your hands,
it fell like water through my fingers,
tumbling away,
a cascade of emotions and hazy scenes.

I reach for you and it’s like a mirage
a figure of smoke and mirrors, just beyond my grasp
I long to touch
Feel warm, gentle, alive
and all I get is cold, metallic, frozen

All I could do…

is look away as time took you from me.
is cry in pain, beat my hands against the cold mirror
begging for you to come back to me, make me whole again.

All I could do…

Was watch as my life changed
in a heartbeat
forever.
