Death Dream

September 16, 2019

Death Dream

 

Alone

 

On the porch

 

Morning coffee

 

Eyes fall shut

 

Dream?

 

Breathing rapid

 

Skull, searing scream

 

Chest muscles fluttering

 

Heartbeat suddenly silent

 

Gasping for air

 

Head quiet

 

All stops

 

Adrift

 

A black ocean

 

Emptiness

 

Silence

 

No Joy

 

No Anger

 

No sadness

 

No glee

 

No panic

 

No calm

 

No fatigue

 

No energy

 

No gates of pearl

 

No fires of damnation

 

A void of complete, quiet, vacancy

 

 

 

I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm.
For each person who overcomes
their demons, there are hundreds,
if not thousands, who do not. 
It is their stories I tell. 

 

“Who am I?”
 

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.
However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to visit my website,

ShortStoryScribe.com

and/or Amazon Author Pages

 

if you are so inclined please purchase a copy
and leave a review.

Thank you,

Joe
