*natural Causes*

Poem By Alien Girl

I awoke last night
To the sound of crickets
And birds, which was strange
The kitchen faucet was dripping
And the cat pawed along the hall
I heard the baby sigh softly
And a car door shut

I turned towards you
You were still
Silent
In the dark I didn't see the blankets rise with your breath
I heard no air escape from your mouth
I heard no air brought in

I contemplated reaching my hand
To shake
Or stir
But only lay there
Waiting for a sign

Then there it was
A small breath

Between you and me
If you can keep a secret that is
I was disappointed

I will have to hit the bottom
So I can push off and swim to the top
I will have to let myself fall so far
To see where I really stand with you

I need you to know
That I’m not all talk anymore
I’ve stopped crying wolf
I’m waking out that door

They say that I am a fortunate one
The fortunate daughter of a poor mans son
That dwells in the city of angels unseen
Living in luxuries you’d never believe

That we need to follow

*you Stood Above His Body*

You stood above his body
And made a promise then
To him
To me
