Tenterhooks# daily prompt # season 4# attempt 33

Every second was heavy with
Thick air of ICU
Though we all knew
But still were hanging on tenterhooks
Heart beat was sinking too
With sinking lines on monitor
Of that machine that
I hate to remember
My eyes were moving from
Machine to you
Pin drop silence
Was killing
Just annoying sound of heartless instruments
For a moment I thought
I’m going to die with you
But NO
Not everyone has
That good fortune
To flee away from all miseries
So easily…
I’m still confused
Were you the lucky one
Who went alone
Or were we all unfortunate
To be left behind
To keep fighting
With one more add-on
Your absence from our lives
Tomorrow it will be your fourth month death anniversary
We all are numb with growing pain inside
Avoiding talking to each other
Ignoring calls on our mobiles
Don’t know
How many more four months or years
Will heal or burn this fire inside…
Will keep you loving and alive
In my memory
My dear brother
Missing you like hell
