Surprising Love

December 29, 2008
By Liz Harwood, Middletown, CT

Like the winter mists in the moonlight
She wishes to fade away forever
To disappear, unnoticed
Plan put into action
As she relived herself from care
Final relief of life
Failed to resolve in drastic measures
Tears mingle with newly drawn blood
Eternal sleep too far to dream of
Eyelids open to reveal a strange setting
Sirens sounding, piercing her wishful silence
Suddenly, a hand to hold
A smile sneaks without propriety
As brought by a young man through telephone wires
This is love.
