A deafening silence Alongside A blinding darkness.
Only my breath, Steady – Breaks the silence.
Flashes of joy, Relentless – Pierces the darkness.
No words spoken And No eyes open.
Silence speaks volumes, Clearly – No rebuttal forthcoming.
Darkness shows all, Vividly – The smile fades.
Future in question, Waning – A sliver remains.
A whisper escapes, Hopeful – Penetrates the ears.
