Flash Friday 55: The Death


Six months ago
I held your hand
as you cried,
tearfully pleading
for a gun
so that you
could take your life
for your pain was
unbearable

Last week
I held your hand
as you cried,
accepting fate…
an example
of courage
faith and strength

Today
God holds my hand
as I cry…
asking why

I really hope that's fiction. Because if you (or someone you know) has been through that you have my deepest sympathy. Excellent writing.
