...Nineteen eighty six bisected life
Into before she asked me to help her die
And the longer half 
Augered unadulterated fury
Having said no 
In a vehicle fuelled 
By the fundament of unwanted responsibility
For life support systems
Passenger in a three decade no

Rupturing my own to save it — ended hers

There is no way, despite  
Myriad of attempts to
Avoid what is ordained 
In family mythology...
