Undone

Heady aroma fills the air
almost sickening to breathe in
I kneel here, intent on prayer.

Magnolia blossoms twirl and spin
dramatic like a tornado,
almost sickening to breathe in.

They overshadow her death blow,
daring to steal her last moment
dramatic like a tornado!

It is I who need atonement,
I failed to save her from herself,
daring to steal her last moment.

She was crushed like a broken shelf,
my cruel words splintered her heart,
I failed to save her from herself.

It was me, from the very start!
Heady aroma fills the air,
cowardly I didn’t do my part.
I kneel here, intent on prayer.
