Breaking

Work Text:

I don’t understand how people do this
Sit still and calm whilst these things occur
Why aren’t you feeling?
Why are you still?
Whilst

I am breaking and-
My family suffering and-
The world is ending and-

This is grief and pain and anti-sceptics
Hospitals alarms bright blinking lights
A healing place
A grieving place?
Here

I am breaking and-
My family suffering and-
Our world is ending and-

She’s so very tiny, tied into wires
Machines to keep her breathing still
The lines go still
The machine still
Now

I am broken and
My family suffering and
Our wold has ended.
