Poem-a-day #11


Each time I felt myself slipping away
Body and spirit beginning to separate
Affixed with a single transparent cord

World turned grey then faded to black
Numbness set in all pain surpassed
The closer I got to deaths waiting door

Elements taken as I was snatched back away
Shadow residuals that will always remain
Left to linger as I returned from the brink

Back to life
Forever changed
