Come, Dark
Isabelle5

It slides around her like forgotten arms,
 1
a shelter and quiet that stills the voices.
 2
Pills in a rainbow of colors, cupped
 3
in her palm, music playing somewhere,
 4
here or beyond, she does not wonder.
 5
 
 
Communion feast of soup and bread,
 6
taken on a small white table
 7
that might have been her knees.
 8
 
 
One piece of chocolate saved
 9
to cut the night in two - one dark half
 10
when midnight strikes, one half
 11
when bells inside of her stop ringing.
 12
 
 
Insistent grey fallen, color of shadows
 13
bringing a sacrament of sleep,
 14
like prayers in a rainbow of cupped palms.
