silence

Holding the breath of air

in a glass jar,

sparkling like crystals and how memories

of youth turn gold with age

and how those left behind rage,

the world seems to pause —

the sky left you defenseless

and stole your wings

and watched silently as you fell.

I am left here, holding your smiles,

laughs, and breaths in my arms,

all that is left

of should-have-beens, could-have-beens,

and the pauses in between.

Your life stole my life.

Now, I can only shed tears in silence.

A/N: Expressing my condolences for the victims of the 3/21 China Eastern Airlines Flight Accident.
