The blood no longer is present
as a skeleton’s hand reaches for the past.

Life no longer is alive with choices
as bones recycle images and experiences
that once were.

A lost love pumps its heart
as bones crack one by one
to enter eternity.

The skeletal remains are consumed
rushing toward infinity.
