A Locked Thought

By Sam Rao   

I saw him lying there and my curiosity was festering
Another human in such a condition was a new concept to my brain
I remember the last moments of His working mind in the hospital bed
My mother held me up to his frail, deathly body
The fear began to flow like the toxic waters of a copper mine
Stress continued to rise as I noticed the rattle of each final breath
Death was an ominous realm for me
The Rejection of it wouldn't work no matter how hard I tried
Dreamy blue skies were suddenly grey to me
I was obsessing about what comes after one's demise
No satisfaction would come from the answers of others and I felt lost
It is a strange feeling to reminisce about such things
There is no good nostalgia here, just odd, locked up memories
