3:00

 

 

Running,

That’s all I remember

I remember running towards the sanatorium at 3:01

I remember running into room 302.

Clutching her hand,

Holding tight,

Making sure she wouldn’t slip away.

I collapsed

Alone on the ground,

 Of room 302 at 3:02

Underestimating my strength, I remained low.

I held her hand once more,

I fell once more

                        Dear Lord,

It’s 3:02 again,

And I remained on the ground.

I was lost, I hope.

I slumbered

I awoke beside her,

And beside myself.

 

She clutched my hand,

She collapsed,

She slumbered,

 

Nevertheless at 3:03
