Poem: Do Not Follow

image

I’ve gone
Somewhere
Dark
Empty
Devoid of light
To suffer
To show you all
Where not to go

There are no angels
No saving grace
No denouement
Just this

Do not follow
Where I now tread
In the twilight
Chrip of insects
Voices far off
The world keeps turning
Without me

I slipped
I fell
So you wouldn’t
