When Death Comes

3-haresWhen Death Comes

It’s so far

from what

you expect

the difference

between a “heroic battle”

and

an actual blow

to the face.

The pain:

So blindingly

sharp

and vicious,

meant

to wound in a way

you will never forget,

change

how you breathe,

leave the hallow air

reverbrating

with shock.

Even when you know

it’s coming,

it arrives

out of nowhere:

so quick,

so uncalled for,

such a terrible

gulf

between before and after.

‘Gemini Rules’

This fine lady and I both agree that Gemini’s make the world go round
And round…and around. Gemini’s are the nicest people you ever want to meet
~both sides of them~
In fact, every year since our worlds first started spinning-we marvel at how many
Gemini’s join us in our birth month.
