Probably For The Better (Part 2)

 

"the best often die by their own hand
just to get away,
and those left behind
can never quite understand
why anybody
would ever want to
get away
from
them"
 - Charles Bukowski (Cause And Effect)
 
 
 .
 

 
I heard the twitter-tattle
of your life choice  
the opinionated self-righteous
calling "coward" to the wind
-smiled at the irony of one
to damn fearful to admit
they've continued the same
process of degrading
towards  
the after-life, dammit!
 
Thought of Marie Antoinette  
wishing people without bread
would just eat cake!  
 
In that moment, that moment
evolution ruled the calling to end  
your pain ridden heart
I imagined you smiled
a deep, calm, beautiful,  
smile of relief, with the  
last remaining
 
-breath .
 

 
 
Respect!
