>"alone" carry on tuesday #57


This week our prompt is the title and opening line of a William Butler Yeats’s poem
“When you are old and grey and full of sleep”
will I leave you to die in an armchair
without love
flesh falling from your bones
will I let your bones crumble
and blow away
trying not to catch them
stand and watch without
Would I do that to you?
