Summary

Beeping, loud then softly
It comforted me hearing the sound but I knew you wouldn't be able to suppress the your deathly cloud
My tears just fell one after the other against your soft head and I became angry thinking that I couldn't save you from the inevitable chains of your bed
And the time drew near and my heart sank back in dread
I rocked back and forth like if the chair was a pendulum and with each creak I waited for the miracle that never came
The doctor announced that you were gone
My heart sank deep down
The shock engulfed me and the tragedy struck me and I never thought my tears would stop flowing, stinging my eyes and welling from inside and I didn't cease from crying for days and nights
I ran to your crib when I heard you let out a shriek that was never heard but was horrified to find that nothing was there
I ran from your bed and screamed
Not from fear, oh no, from the undeniable truth that a part of me was gone
My own mortality had disappeared in despair
I yearned for release from my chains of grief
But none came and days turned to months
And I found myself on the floor begging for mercy from anything in the cosmos to banish the agony
But nothing swooped down and no wings lifted me from the pit of my perpetual curse
Though it's been years it still feels the same, the pain and the tears just come in without a hello
Nothing prepares me and nothing gives alarm
I give in to it and allow it to take me by its dismal charms
It weakens me so to just try and let go...

Beeping loud then softly It comforted me hearing the sound but I knew you wouldn't be able to suppress your deathly cloud My tears fell one after the other against your soft head. And I became angry thinking that I couldn't save you from the inevitable chains of your bed And the time drew near and my heart filled up in dread I rocked back and forth like if the chair was a pendulum and with each creak I waited for the miracle that never came The doctor announced that you were gone My heart sank deep down The shock engulfed me and the tragedy struck me I never thought my tears would stop flowing stinging my eyes and welling from inside and I didn't cease from crying for days and nights I ran to your crib when I heard you let out a shriek that was never heard but was horrified to find that nothing was there I ran from your bed and screamed Not from fear, oh no, from the undeniable truth that unfurled Part of me was gone My own mortality had disappeared in despair I yearned for release from the bounds of grief But none came and days turned to months I found myself on the floor begging for mercy from anything in the cosmos to banish the agony Nothing swooped down and no wings lifted me from the pit of my perpetual curse Though it's been years it still feels the same The pain and the tears just come in without a "hello" Nothing prepares me and nothing gives alarm I give into it and allow it to take me by its dismal charms It weakens me so to just try and let go
