Soilo Urias

The pain fades to gray

The colors die
The roses fall

Time stops
one final tick and
the pain is gone
people stop in motion
planes fall the world is frozen
time has ended it is gone
gone never to tick tock again
the casket is open

I am looking down I see
What has happened how
can it be that he has fallen

time has done what the war could
not taken him down to finally be
underground I think long
hard the pain settles he is gone I
hear the words I don’t believe
no I won’t it isn’t possible
tie you see will finish us all
the ground awaits to carry us all
the casket is open I shed a tear and
try to hold them all back failing mostly
but finally break in the car

I feel the pain I sit silently thinking
When and where and why
Why did this happen to him
He lost as will we all ther is no
Gray in death just black and white
As we all travel to the path
We all taste the sweetness of life
The bitterness of death
How does it taste
The pain will is like a burning chill
In my mouth
Like a razor footed butterfly
Filling me with doubt
Know the bitterness of lemons
Mixed with lime
The sour fills me with pain
