My numb mind shatters

As maternal love breaks me

You take your last breath

    • You are too kind, sir. But I’ll take it! 🙂 Thank you so much. I like reading how people take your prompts in such different directions but I’ve been reluctant to join in since I don’t write poetry. Thanks, again, for the encouragement.
