An Affair with Death...
" I am not ready to commit.".......
I knew I was gone when I went into the sleep..
There was no guilt or pain insight..
I’ve never had an affair of the heart..of mind, body and soul..
The comfort I felt was beyond words from my mind...
And I was destined to fall under his spell...
The fire I felt on my skin began to rage..
I became like an animal in a cage..
Every time I drew back, he pulled me forward..
I could feel his arms embrace me like no other,
His strength overpowered me and breathing became a necessity..
I gasped each time we danced the dance..
I could feel life’s breath leaving my body..
As he held me tighter and tighter..
I have never known such ecstasy as I drew each breath as the last..
Don’t know why I gave in so easy, temptation is not one of my virtues..
I’ve always weighed the pro’s and cons..
Who is this man of many tricks that I would succumb to him ?
I am smarter than this I thought in one lucid moment..
Begone I said..leave me alone I do not want to follow you..
All you want is my soul..and I am not ready..
When I am I will call you....
PS. This was a recent experience I had in a hospital ICU...
