Ever felt the pang

Cracking sound heard

Scars left behind

By the broken pieces 

The residue settling 

Resting at the bottom

Too heavy to be blown away

Too slippery to hold

Moving about anywhere 

And eventually everywhere 

The fire dying

Just water left

Leaking out our eyes

Pain of our hearts

The vessels blocked

Lungs full of water

Physically nothing wrong 

Emotionally too far gone

Felt instead of seen

Stumbling on the steps 

Finally taking the last breath 

A heavy one

The one full of pain

The finality

Of a broken heart, 

Soul and spirit

Goodbye to it all.
