Deeply MUSED


Meaning in memory

Face at the front

Words worthy marking

Peace-ful in pause

Tethered to terror

NIGHTMARE still near

Hoping in holding

Days to declare

Slowly they’re ceasing

Lives lost and lived

Compressing composing

Grasping for grip

Attic awakened

Opening overwhelms

Waiting and wondering

Impending impact swells.
