Death Consume Me

Death Consume Me

A Poem by Jessica Slatton

I feel like everything is crashing down.

My insides are caving in, and crushing my lungs.

I am shaking uncontrollably.

Maybe fear? Pain? Loss?

Death just consume me now.

For I already feel your hand on me.

Better death then loss.

I can’t lose.

Oh God save me, save us.

Make it okay, take the pain away.

Make it stop!

Make it go away!

The shaking.

The fear.

That feeling.

Have I lost it?

Have I lost her?

Am I losing you?

I love you don’t you see.

I wish that it could be.

But miles apart were forced to see.

The pain that cuts deep as the sea

Beautiful writing!
