slowly

each day
he pulls life
from them, he takes-
everything

he has killed them-
slowly

through history, through
habit, through
chaos

he left them
gasping for life, for
breath, for hope,
for trust
making mistake,
after mistake-
their own

the leaves
fall, covering new
understandings, new
secrets, new memories
each season
a mix of better,
and of worse
