This lesson in goodbye is a lot like waking in winter
& we are still stunted in growth, humanity as an insect
in amber, dull metallic layer covers the exact details
clinging to our flimsy forms, bending limbs in the
wrong direction, a pull on a vein, the burst of an organ
the denial of an act - & yet here we will wait
Author's Note: Dead funny! by Archie Bronson Outfit. With a smirk and, slight tear, I realise what I am.

Some where I heard that patience is supposed to be a virtue and that I was born with more than I should have. Good write lady.

Wow! How does one begin expressing his response to this poem. Mature, articulate, captivating are three adjectives that immediately come to mind. Glad I had a chance to read it.
