Death & Dying Can’t Stop Crying


My dad, butterball, & yoshi.
All found dead on the floor.
They answered the knock at death's door.
Traumatized by the image.
It wasn't assault.
It was no one's fault.
It was just like my dead goldfish.
Death is not usually a wish.
Aquatic life is just as precious.
It left a haunting message.
Maybe there is not a better place.
A hollow bottomless pit you can't trace.
Hidden realms with experiences which overwhelm.
