Sunder

We are split apart,

Torn limb from limb, 

Screaming, 

Flailing, 

Bleeding. 

There is no end to it. 


We are falling, 

There is no ground to catch our fall 

And most certainly

There are no arms. 


There is no one to run to.

You are on your own. 


We tried so hard to push through,

But in the end, it didn’t even matter. 


We were sundered in our last breaths of life.

And we didn’t even have a choice.

I love the word "sunder" and I wanted to write something devoted to it.

This sounds so devastating, and sadly, it's message is so true...
