(Spring, Edvard Munch, 1889)
They tell me you are dying
Don’t they know?
From the moment you took your first breath you were dying
you knew that
The girl who saw the shadows as doorways
An opening exposing pasts that can never change
A hint of the future with multiple yous
Untapped, undiscovered, and predetermined all the same
Wondering wide-eyed into the light
Adventures only limited to the what the imagination could inspire
Feelings unraveled that were never tempered–not with you–
anger and love equal in fervor
Where is all that now?
Now that your body is no longer the vessel of experience
Questioning the reasons; tortured by the reality of Hell…
this process of death
I have looked upon you as a goddess–a warrior of life
A boundary breaker of a soul’s purpose
You didn’t limit your perspective
you saw the truth in living
And now as death reaches for your grasp
You pull back not in fear, merely an instinctual recoil
Not haunted by what has been, or even what is
but in wonder as to where you are going next?
One thought on “Unraveling Eternity”
Touching story It’s evident she touched your life, Beautiful!
