stop’it

i went into a pit to rescue my sister who was down there in it

i beseeched her to reach up, climb out to the light but in fright

she held me to her and together we swallowed the night

she cried, at least she wasn’t alone

.

not a haiku

.

should we drown so another is not alone

or show the way, lead the way, be the way

btw
