Poor Man

June 12, 2008
By Alyssa Tucker, Moses Lake, WA

Hands cold,
Frozen.
Legs stiff,
Numb.

The pain,
Intense.
The reason,
More so.

Mountain hike,
Pleasing.
Friend’s laughter,
Filling.

Storm clouds,
Threatening.
Blizzard,
Imprisoning.

The separation,
Misery.
The hope to return,
None.

Hands cold,
Frozen.
Legs stiff,
Numb.

Death’s call,
Welcoming.
The pain,
Receding.

The sleep,
Enticing.
Death’s invitation,
Received.
