PASSING YOU

Unnoticed Imperceptible
I passed you
on that hill
Promenade precipitous
I almost didn’t notice
you hid well
Sanity slipping
fluid-subtle down
Smart-cruel
you knew all along
I suspect
that life and trials
were soon to overtake you

I didn’t stop
when You
Fatal-Drunk
with Pain and Oh No
lost control
while leading me on
I haven’t
searched for evidence
Obituaries
Psychiatrically impounded
Others
that might not
have survived
Your Hostage-taking
Horror-stun
upon realizing
you’re fragile
Haven’t prayed for you-
I assumed you’d think
I was patronizing
Insane before you
Can’t imagine
can you
that I might
have dropped that baggage
off like trash
on Lifes
metaphorical wayside
Passing you
last night
on the hill
