My continuance is left behind
in blood, tears, joys of years
shelved texts accumulating
pages of words, digital cipher
index, lexicon of all my days
poetic transience, allegory of
redeemable moments held
in spaces of form, prosody
rhymed, heart beat captured
of all I could sacrifice of me
hours skinned, laid bare
minutes exposed, thoughts
recorded in fidelity, vestige
freed, liberated, sounds in air.
