Life, Bye For Now

Darkness fills the spaces between homes.
Eating up heart beats that dare to sound
in the empty, oozing open air.
Even an exhale can echo in expanding places.

Our world on pause,
lights do not flicker,
computers are online,
the table is always a mess.

Our world stops,
but clouds still float by,
trees still grow,
cattails sill sway in the spring wind.

you must understand the dread,
the finally realizing how bad it is,
when you call 911...
and no one answers.
