Slip Away

By Ami (Gypsie) Offenbacher-Ferris

In the beginning

the thought of slipping away

is terrifying

is heart-stopping

is a far distant aspect to be avoided

In the beginning there is no pain

there is no struggle to breathe

no struggle to walk

or to talk

or to eat

no reason to fight

The war rages on

the body is torn

time slips away

Naught even blaring a horn

save the last tender sound

Slip away breath peace abounds
