I feel your mortality

I feel your mortality

as catching as a breeze from unknown corners.

your winkled fear and confusion etched in chaotic lines-

too many words you never hear,

too many images, moving…blurr.

I feel your mortality

in the way you crumple up after sentences of fact

emotions so tender beneath a caloused surface

is this what the oncoming train feels like

when you know the end is just a matter of time?

I did not feel your sadness

until I saw you shudder and stumble in the cold

your  bushy brows squinting against the hot tears

choking for breath because it hurts to know, it hurts to know

frail we are, and frail we shall be

and now I feel, I know, your mortality…
