without you

at this moment
this very moment

when ambition fails
utterly to commend
even the slightest
simplest movement

when flesh tightens
and bones calcify
eyes bereft of all but
the humblest sight

when spirits insensate
so sinfully ignored
and swiftly interred
in mountains of dust

at this moment
this very moment

hearts persist
in beating
far too loudly
to be heard

please

make it stop
