~The Taste of Death...

~The Taste of Death...

A Poem by Frieda P
"

questionable mysteries of death

"

What does death taste like, 
          is it bittersweet or acerbic
does the scent jolt one
                   to senseless abandon

is the feel of floating
                on zephyr's eternally blissful
what does one see
           when faced with death's eyes

do angels beckon us
                   to join the alluring alliance of souls
a clarion sound of heaven's harmony
                             to peaceful sleep

or will the devil come a knockin' 
                           with hell's bells last call

perhaps we merely become infinitesimal flecks
               endlessly ephemeral,         flitting 
                              within pure grandness of the megacosm

This is such a beautifully constructed poem. Love the flow. You present your readers with some searching questions. I used to wrestle with these questions all the time.. so often I would drive myself insane from it. I finally resolved that death was a natural cycle of rebirth, and left it at that. Great job!

Grazie mille :-)
Death is a really intriguing topic, because it is the other side of life, you won't want me started about death because I'm a student of mysticism. A truly thought provoking and beautifully done poem. Well done.

Thanks Zahra, I guess that'd be a whole other poem there.
I find my belief to how death feels is exactly how we felt before we were born of the womb. Do you not remember it? Exactly.
Enticing, morbid, and just at the brink of the concepts I so lovingly enjoy.

Thanks for the visit and review Khaled.
The guarded elegance within the wording lends to mask the punch one feels while reading this piece, well done, good read.

Hmm, 'guarded elegance' I like that one Thomas, thank you kindly.
Not bad. Good use of imagery, and I think you've managed to handle your topic fairly well. I think there's room to expand, as the ending doesn't really feel very final or fitting, really. I think that you could have branched out a little and tried not to cram so much imagery into the limited space of the piece, but it's still very readable. Good work.
