The second death

The second death

A Poem by ~Sarah~ Idríel The Fair

Sometimes your get hear or read about the second death. The first one is the death which is something that we all have to travel. But the second death happens then when no one remembers you anymore. Well she is in the spirit world now, but at first she doesn't understand it. Her memories still bind her to the world of the living.

"I remember I used to walk
down the riverside road,

a summer breeze, a smile,
a warm laughter, a life
to remember.

But now - as I gaze
I do not see you,
mind's like a haze,
Only
empty rooms and empty shells.

At first I did not understood
why I wasn't there with them,
always something stood
between us, me and them.

A bright thing, a shivering light,
a sweet music and yellows sight.
Everything was right, everything's good,
but still something was holding me back here.

I remember I used to walk
down the riverside road."

I love your work dear Sarah and you are welcome.
Seems we have been here for a long, long time. Your "About me" is very real and good.

I see me depicted within this - a still-living and being of memories and presence.
