The Vision of Her

Funny thing happened this morning…
I felt as if I had died, when I woke up
It was like I was a corpse moving around the living
Like I was not felt but I was missed instead

Funny thing happened to me this morning
I felt the world inhale me
Pull me up its nostrils and ingest me in its lungs
Slaps of fresh storms winds,
I cheat you not; I could not breathe nor turn
I felt my flesh rip out of my bones,
And my bones chip away to expose my soul
I felt no pain, just calm instead

Funny thing happened to me this morning
I knew that I had gone,
But I felt safe somehow… when I saw her vividly like a mist
Funny thing happened to me this morning
I saw HOPE, as all I knew collapsed
She lay lifeless deep in the darkness she was plunged…
Funny thing happened to me this morning
I knew that I could not give up
I was not scared, just brave instead
