day 25/last straw

the last straw– is the prompt for the day

the heart that had it
Say a prayer for me he said as he heard his heart slip from his chest
Beating it laid on the ground looking to the sky for an answer
He fell
He heard it speak to him
Feel the breath of my life slip over the concrete
You know this is your finishing point
As it is mine it is yours
I have felt your pain for too many lifetimes
I was always there before you knew of love and death and horror
I am a constant in your world and others
I leave you the way you left me
Beaten
