A Brief Moment in Time by Wayne Russell

Make all the pain stop
take it all away, death
shall come like a thief
in the night, lucid, like
a wayward friend.

This heart thrust fourth
a loneliness most could
never fully fathom.

Spiders weave their webs
in midnight silhouette, an
inconclusive rattling of time,
eyes that echo a dawn, never
seen.

I held her within the weathered
palm of my hand, for a brief 
moment of time, only to let 
her slip away.
