poetry by j matthew waters

precious is the night

I was looking for some sort of sign
a little something to let me know
you were alive and well

as the electrical storm rolled in
I could detect your precious thoughts
coming through in fits and starts

though the pain in my hands
worsened from the impending doom
I managed to subdue my foreboding
whilst transcribing reassuring poetry

may two thousand nineteen
