Tears of Blood

Lost and asphyxiated
she put forth her frail steps
with sheer hesitation,
the world appeared from a different time, nothing she was aware of,
neither seen
nor read in any gothic charms,
the memories were vague,
and patches of smeared thoughts
crossed her mind,

she held the hand of her beloved mother
was what she remembered
as the last episode
and now she remained
blind and despaired
desolate she cried tears of blood,
for she knew,
her mama was from a different planet
and she was never gonna return

Prompt given by the amazing Manic Sylph
