Poem during the Plague: Poem 28

Bridget Seley-Galway


We melded into oneness 
became a lively chorus  
of each days anticipation 

there was something of me 
separate from you 
an unrelenting foreboding whisper 
pushed forward 

where nights aching limbs  
wore away possibilities  
and frayed like dust into ether 

then letting go  
there is an after life 

where we are one again
