A screaming
clock brings
me back to
the living.
Shouting, ordering

commanding. Come
to the light. I slam
my fist on the
cold surface.

Begging for just
a bit more
time

of darkness.
Not yet finished
with my life

in the shadows.
Not until after
I say

my goodbyes; Do I
close my eyes
and allow

myself to step
into the
light,

opening
the golden gates

of Heaven.
