So alone.
Cold now.
I lie here waiting for the heavens.
I do not fear death,
I fear isolation.
Frantic searches through the phonebook ­produced nothing;
No one is coming for me.
A camera is the source of the only memories
I have left;
Flashes of perfection clutched now in ­desperation.
Heart stops.
An egregious lunge toward bedside table,
Past tissue for prescription.
A sorrowful old man
With sorrowful news,
I am not well.
I desire someone to tell,
Such luxuries desert me.
I lie here waiting for the heavens.
Cold now.
So alone.
