vigil for nothing

Photo by cottonbro on
vigil for lost time
vigil for an anxious mind

for a heart beating out of rhythm
for an abstract version of a
moment you will never get back

awareness for the what-ifs
awareness for the things
you could never comprehend
so you spend all of your
precious time trying to 

pray for the void
pray for the oblivion
for the mother who is
so afraid of losing her arms
she simply stops using them
