WHEN DEATH CAME KNOCKING

I understand why she wanted

To walk away from this world

Why, when death started knocking

She opened the door and let him in

.

.

.

She was tired of all the moments that her heart broke

She was tired  of mustering  all her strength to put it back together

She was tired of the endless fear 

The chipping away of her plaster encased heart

And the fragile contents within

.

.

.

When death came knocking 

She smiled and opened the door 

“I’ve been waiting for you” she said 

“Take me, death.  I have grown impatient”

.

.

.

What torture this life has been

The never ending strive for better

For happiness 

For success 

For love 

For acceptance 

For laughs 

And hugs 

And tender fingertips 

.

.

.

Passionate kisses were never so hard to find

.

.

.

And 

A man that would throw her heart around 

Was always around the corner

.

.

.

But when morning comes

And the truth invades

She wished that she could not exist 

She wished that she could tear through the temporary comfort that softened her fall 

She wished she could rip through her own skin 

Make herself inside out 

Bleed until she slept an endless nap 

She wanted to break faces 

Hear her echoed screams 

Burn a house down to its bones

.

.

.

Why was life so difficult?

.

.

.

Why was happiness a foreign language,

That surfaced so few and far between?

.

.

.

She wanted it all to stop 

Her worry 

Her beating heart 

Her fear 

Her tears 

.

.

.

And then death came knocking at her door 

She smiled her own mischievous smile 

And said .. 

“Take me”
