"What happened, the night She disappeared?"

Time Lapse

The mother, screaming, in her greatest moment of fear,
but all I remember were droplets of tears
by which her make-up was smeared

Police sirens everywhere
Without a clue
       ~She,       became      Air~

Absence of Air, suffocated her loved ones
Each day their suffering became ever more great
To the point where their food no longer had taste

Time came and time went
No postcard or even a letter was sent
Gray haired and great stress
But all the mother ever needed was Air to satisfy her hunger for breath

The mother cried and cried

Why did she leave?

Wishing and waiting for Air to come and say hi
Gasping and gasping, the official last moments to all that is life
A final good-bye
And then, she finally died...

As you can see,
Air never came
Air never carried no shame
Air never stayed in one place
Because Air, was never meant to be tamed..
