Back to oblivion

DEATH

I’m not ready to rejoin humankind

I keep in touch on this blog obliquely

Wrought words from a drunken mind

Rendered honestly albeit bleakly

I admit under scientific law

And the force of reality’s duress

That my wife does not exist anymore

No memory no dreams no awareness

Disappeared into the darkness of death

The same as if she had never been born

Back to oblivion with her last breath

And for me a hell that darkens each dawn
