A Poem by Psychotic Lily

The last time she was carried...

She was always carried on a stretcher.
The ambulance doors closed as they hurried to the hospital.
I would always visit her bringing food she liked.
My little sister would tell her stories about school.
And we'd go home happy with a kiss goodbye.

But when everything fell apart...

I gave my kiss to a stone cold body.
My little sister bawled as she clung to me.
In my hands where white flowers she loved.
The hearse's doors closed as it crawled to the cemetery.
The last time she was carried was in a coffin.

And when everything was over...

I tried to rebuild what was destroyed along with her body.

"Carry"! What a perfect name for this piece. Memories of loved ones who have been ill for some time would have this predominant theme. Well done, for seeing that.
