raven

At the window,
A raven perches.
The lonely bed, grasps a single child.
The monotonous beeping nearly scares the raven away.
But the raven stays until the beeping stops.

At the window,
A raven perches,
An empty chair, looks at a fallen figure.
The slow breathing nearly scares the raven away.
But the raven stays until the breathing stops.

At the window,
A raven perches,
A full car, turns sharply.
The loud scream nearly scares the raven away.
But the raven stays until the screams stop.

At the window,
A raven perches,
A well-dressed man, knocks on a door.
The shaking hand nearly scares the raven away.
But the raven stays until the shaking stops.

At your window,
A raven waits,
You struggle, grasping for air.
The desperation nearly scares the raven away.
But the raven stays until the desperation stops.
