with each breath

 

and with each exhale

fell deeper into the collapsed walls

of a dream

that she once called

and she knew

that even if her body kept moving

aimlessly

in the direction of death

as all living forms do

still her soul would fail

prematurely

 

and the laws of how to live a life

did not apply anymore

inside her fading brain

except a lurking passion

that she could not shake

 

and she knew

amidst the years

that would pass

in an instant
