And shall you attend my

Watch all of my thoughts
as they pool at your feet?

Shall you step aside
so as not to
dinge your heavy boots
with the gore of my

You’ve silenced me
enough by your

The sound of your
footsteps on the stairs,
I can hear them now
even in death
I am frightened
I watch me drain away
into nothing

The last thing I see are
those boots
Those life crushing,
thunderous & crashing,
damning & ragged
old boots
