The Jury Doesn't See It That Way

written by: devereaux frazier

@marylandpoet

 

the clouds
shield the stars
the completion
I search for
I do breathe in the day
but I don't live
until nightfall
see the constellations
in perfect harmony
and a tiny drop
of gratitude
fall from me
onto these pages
I give my dying breaths
hoping you will see
the victory of the battle
that killed
hoping that despite
not knowing
what I've been doing
you will know
what I've done
there's so much more
I wish to say
but the jury doesn't see it
that way
goodbye
world
love her
well
my last
and
only
wish
