Death in a text

At the strike of the twentieth hour the universe paused
The earth tremors around my heart, its beatings paused
The scrolls of a space without time rolled to this text
My tears of pain rolled down the text


My Alice divorced life, remarried death
Now I court pain, my eyes, our children wept
Encrypted in the message, first disbelief
In false hope, I found relief


My faith struck firm like a nail on the wall of a dilapidated building
Though built tall its foundation yielding
My anger broke down denial to depression
My love left me in grief’s suppression
