Minute Form. Don’t we all have an innate desire to continue living?
swift river leads where mischief passed
demise comes fast
the embers glow
my heart’s red snow

my prison chills my blue blood's will
immobile still
my soul now fights
for dreams of might

a sudden breath, a gulp of air
for death’s despair
in peace I drift
tis freedom’s gift


to live
