The Ribbon


*Tick, tock*
Weeks go by
I tell myself try not to die
As I see the machines in my room
I ask myself
Am I going too soon?
*Tick,tock*
Days go by
I can no longer cry
I suffer more and more
My heart is torn
My mind wanders,soon the light.
*Tick,tock*
Just five more minutes
The ribbon pulls and tears
Every part that is still there
The ribbon pins me down
Without a single, bitter sound.
*Tick,tock, tick,tock*
Seconds go by
I’m almost to the heavenly sky
The ribbon takes it all
At the start of fall
My husband begans to sob
The ribbon has done it’s job.
*Tick...*
