revelation

by Nancy

Her cry of horror
Terror

My growl of shattered hope
A last instinct of the mortally wounded

I forgot
My face

Nights
Caring

Hours
Learning

Trusted

Becoming friends

I forgot my face

Now
I am jagged pieces

Crawling away
Away

Some dark place
Hidden
Broken

Slain

~

Sobs
Her pain
Ours

I cannot die

Fragments
Heaped bits
In the dirt

Still

I am
For her

Upright
Swaying
Dripping shame

I will save her
Again

~

Healer
I am
Healed

Whole

I will
I must be content in this
The only moment of its kind that I shall ever have

Farewell
Catherine

I love you
