The Slow Death Creating

Scraps of me flake
off, spiral, directionless.
These fragments that compose me
are driven with unseen force–
will, a necessity to stumble,
smiling mostly,
I am abandoned to dim–
shrink, and fade to white.
But as my blinks glow slow,
far between, erratic,
I can still blow them away
wisp them together,
hoping for an affinity
and wait
watch
they stare back at my passing
light–I know.

    1. Thanks Tony! Yea, I actually almost did that on accident (meant to write ‘grow’ and started to write ‘glow’) then I decided I liked it and kept it! Haha! Funny how that happens sometimes.
