There it Ended

At the top

of that peak,

where every grunt,

groan,

gurgle,

cough,

and choking thrust,

was driving the distance,

between me and patience,

to the limit,

I stretched out my hand,

stroking her back,

offering what little was left,

and there it ended.

 

She became quiet,

as we climbed down,

the peak of panic,

together,

two old dogs,

learning,

new,

tricks.
