A Moment's Hesitation

Poem By Dee Daffodil

She had been a drama queen
No really! On the silver screen!
She had been an actress fair
Until this day came to bare...

There was a moment's hesitation
That's why they call them...hesitation marks!
That moment of indecision...do...or not?

I wonder what went through her head
If she guessed that she'd be dead
If she knew it for a fact
That this time...
There was no coming back...
From that other side...

So when we found her
In that tub
With crimson waters
And glass of wine...Merlot I'm guessing...
It saddened me
To think...
That she had been here hours ago..
But alas...we missed her!

In that splintered moment
Just hours before...
What did she think?
What did she feel?
What did she wish for...
Just before...
Going through...
Her final door...

Exit...stage right!

I love 'story' poems, and this is an excellent one! You haven't read my 'Lennonesque' by any chance, have you? :) No..probably not! : (
Academy Award winning poem, dear friend. This piece carries the reader along through the dimly lit passage way and right to the caution tape with the still open unseeing eyes of the vixen lies. Very Nice Be Well
the poem is full of compassion, expressed poignantly. what drives people over the brink is a big question. somehow i feel it requires courage to live as well as to end life like this. thanks mamta
This is a beautiful poem written with compassion and it elicits deep thought. Thank You. Yuri
Dee, this is indeed a sad piece. What makes it sadder is when you ask why do people feel so lost to do such a thing to themselves. There is never an answer, at least not one that I could ever fathom out. Top marks and thanks for sharing a poem with compassion. David
