A poem

the long hand stretches

turns a tick

heads downwards

taking us all with it

when you die i’ll come visit you

he once said to me

love me while i’m here

i told him

the hand moves slowly

and deliberately

pointing to a place

that is unknown

the good go to heaven

she said

bad people burn in hell

i replied

i know

i know

so i live a life by a book

of rules

written by old men

and me not knowing

where i will find my soul

will die

    "when you die i’ll come visit you he once said to me" I've had this happen to me before. Said by my guy best friend at that time. I can't recall exactly why he said it, it was 11 years ago. But I remember how badly it hurt 🥺 Loved your poem!
