death comes from behind

death comes from behind

A Poem by light years in love
"

05/2012

"
Standing up, I try to walk away from the chilling
and penetrating breath that runs down the
back of my neck. Trying to walk away from 
this grim feeling in my throat as death treads  
behind me like a vortex. Sucking at my essence.

The unified screaming that sounds next is like a 
terrified choir as death pulls at me with his might
and hate. I can feel the strings of my soul being
unraveled back into the darkness. My focus attempt's
to fight off this unbelievable and seemingly a vision.

All the while I'm being yanked deeper and deeper
into a infernal pit. My skin burns deeper than the
sun has ever touched. In fear my heart pounds with
understanding. Death has come to take his mocker.
Come to show me that even I cannot evade him.

Brightness materializes in front of me and pulls me
out of death's grasp. "HE IS MINE" the light says in
the loudest, most melodic voice I've ever heard.
"Why? He embraces me." death snarls.  "HE IS PAID
FOR. ITS YOUR PRESSURES. YOU HAVE YOUR WAYS." 

The horrific choir screams and just as quickly as
death and his host had appeared. They vanish. 
Collapsing my soul rises towards the light. Nail
scarred hands cover me and holds my spirit lightly.
I'm filled with knowledge and a desire to stay.

"YOU MUST GO BACK. YOU MUST TELL THE WORLD."

Ok so yea this is very true. I had this life and death experience recently. I've been reeling for days.. I know that this is very controversial and most will laugh but I truly believe that if I don't share this and convey it in the most honest way that I will be held accountable for not following through with my promise to God. Thanks for reading. The importance of our souls is where this poem stands. Please take the time to filter this and if there is anyone here that is struggling with spiritual and emotional issues.. plz do not hesitate to contact me. I will listen and help in anyway I can. Thanks to my fans for following me through this journey. I love each and everyone of you.

I'm not a spiritual person but the clash of light and darkness is a very real thing for me. The imagery and emotion in this sent goosebumps up my arms. There were one or two grammatical spots but the meaning and everything you tried to convey to us readers succeeded in doing so. J'adore! -Ian

Thank you for sharing your experience. I truly believe you experienced one of God's miracle messages. Such an inspirational message to share in today's world... where chaos and unrest are so prevalent and peace is so hard to find

Blessings and Light

I like the conversation between life and death. the whole poem was genius. This art is something intricate and psychological. A poem about two major forces and you caught between them

Go then, there are other worlds than these. ;)

I thought that quote was fitting. This is a tremendous write, there is so much depth and wonder to be found within the bruising of these pained words. I really enjoyed this.

My boyfriend likes this alot. He, who feels no emotion whatsoever usually, really got chills down his back and was boasting on and on about how much he likes this poem. I envy you. I love it though. Wonderful. Now the trick is to shut him up about it.
