The Lost Soul – microstory

Her wilting body rises and falls
In spasms of exhaustible energy.

Flatline…

My team – the doctor, two nurses –
Attempt to resusitate.

In exasperated exultation, we call it.

Her soul escapes
In the wreckage of a failed existence.

Only an empty fragment remains.

      1. Yeah. It was addiction. She was young but her body couldn’t handle any more of the stresses she had done to it. I wish I could have added just a tad bit more for it.
