Dying Breath Alone within a mental silence a tearful memoir etched upon a face Celestial wings surrounding Eternal imagery Displayed upon the reaper’s mantelpiece Muted with words Mumbling a fearful thought The opening of a lifetime note Disguised drowning in crimson The last supper from your bleeding throat A journal of devils Appraisals from your earthly bound sins Mischievous orbs shall gather The roads are paved in black Strangulated whispers they call The welcoming from your dying last breath ©Anthony Crowley 2016 Title: "Weightless" Photographer: Antoine Gedroyc
