Book of Eli

“Do you remember what it was like in the world before?”

“People had more than they needed. They had no idea what was precious, what wasn’t. We threw away things. People killed each other.”

~Denzel Washington (Book of Eli)



When I’m in between
I feel a weightless breeze
cold upon my face as
shallow breaths escape.
Colors are a blur against
the blackness ahead.
You reach me still
even here
lingering –
a vague presence
while I am
slowly slipping away.
