TEARS IN THE DARKNESS

What do you do when
you can’t stop the tears,
when your mind is overwhelmed
by your darkest fears?
 
When you dread the day
that will very soon come
and you reach the end
where it all once began.
 
The deep breath of life
slips beyond your reach,
though you beg and plead
and tearfully beseech.
 
Just one more day;
a month; a year,
to enjoy before goodbyes
are all you can hear.
 
But the dark vignette tinge
is creeping in from the edge
and your soul; your life;
your very essence, you pledge.
 
I’m not ready for the exit,
it’s too early to leave,
I beg you, on my knees,
for just one more reprieve?
