Whelming walls crushingly closing
World around coldly crumbling
Wordy ad in-face is screaming
For one in pain to be reaching!
But each pore inside is screaming
Every muscle in throat is tearing
Drooping eyes dam is bursting
Searing soul agony is stinging!!
Trying hard to be connecting
But shyness keeps one pulling
Tumbling thoughts keep tongue tied,
Someone ask why breath is petrified?
Sadness cloud’s fog not clarified?
Lifting life’s air is getting rarefied
Soundless spirit slips sans pride
Rejoins realm of cruel self-end ride!!!
Call loved one, message, reach, write
Later are wasted empty words trite
To claim how much for dead one cried
All is over no matter how one died
With compassion NOW is time all tried
To ask are you okay, are you happy?
Are you alone, are you lonely?
Encourage, support, ask, send a smiley
Hang ignorance, arrogance that cost dearly!!!!!
