The Darkness Called Virus

The Darkness Called Virus

The darkness called virus
Breaths into this human shroud
Before me.
Weeping life from
Hypoxic shorn lungs
To claim as its own
One more among us.
Nefarious, waiting,
Voracious in its claims
Laughing with unmasking.


This is a personal reflection about caring for patients with COVID-19 who died.
