Life: The Questioning

When is the right time to treasure life?
Does one wait until the wrong time happens to others?
You witness Karma’s attack on someone close to you,
His body wearing with fighting invisible demons
Which grow obese with the slow devouring of his Soul,
And Its’ ticking becomes accelerated,
And Its’ sounds become deafening.

When is the right time to treasure life?
Does one wait until another walks away?
No one could question the Love you had for each other,
But the Love just wasn’t enough to make her stay.
She always was your strongest advocate,
But you kept seeking other elements
Not in alignment with a healthy relationship.
Disrespect and dishonesty dripped decadently
Causing excessive amounts of erosion,
So she had to leave, although she had forgiven you
Since you refused to take a reprieve from the toxic deeds.
Yet you telling others it’s really her fault,
Perpetuating as if you have no clue.

When is the right time to treasure life?
Does one wait until another person is gone?
When you are holding her closely in your arms,
Begging her to hold on, blood coating your palm.
Praying the ambulance comes with great haste;
Her eyes becoming dark, life draining from her face.
Sirens finally arrive, trying to shock in a miracle,
Nothing but a glowing parallel line
Too little, too late.
