COLLAPSED AND DIED (Not a cheery poem)

There's something terrifying
About the expression
Collapsed and died -
The unknowable story


Told with such ambiguity
By those who survive you

Within that simple phase
Terror that could strike us all
Gone and without warning
A sudden end to our everything

All those

Important things left unfinished
As we go about our lives

The things we leave unsaid
Promises that we'll do it later
All those vital plans falling
Down and without warning

All gone

Your whole life’s sentence ending
With a sudden full stop

MAWH, July 2017
