Lay still

Closure came tip-toed,
and whispered to him,
“Darling, you can have me.”

The feeling that the end was nigh
that floated on the surface of his being
became concrete
and sank in deep, somewhere.
He rested
as he watched Anxiety leave.
Now, he rested
underneath Her weight.

The knife lay still, wedged deep between his ribs.

    1. Thank you, I am glad you liked it.
      The point of the word-poem game is to use the word in an unexpected way. I can’t wait to see how you use the words I gave you. 🙂

      Btw, do you realize nothing rhymes with “ribs”!? 😛


      1. I’m just putting mine up. I don’t know if it’ll surprise you but that doesn’t mean I didn’t try. I don’t want to ruin your expectation but the word isn’t central to my attempt.

        Actually, now that I think about it, I think I didn’t understand the motive well enough!
