Death will bring peace

Death will bring peace

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"

A old true story.

"
  Death will bring peace.


A pretty and kind Angel sleeps alone.
She turns from love and accepted solitude.
 In the darkness of lonely nights.
 She wished for more hellos and less goodbyes.
 
Old men sitting in the back of the corner bar.
Sitting with friends drinking shots of whiskey.
 Old timer Joe toast to a woman left alone so long ago.
 
The woman who once held  love as her will to be alive.
 Tells her lovers now.
All I have to give is flesh and bones now.
 Her eyes empty and sad.
 Her hunger now is to feel a man inside her.
 Her last emotion.
 
Liars pay the Devil his due.
The lair of the storytellers and fool's is always filled with more sinners.
 
Old Joe tells me whiskey won't take your sadness away.
Those damn memories come back and leave you empty
and wishing for some kind of peace.
 
He takes my hand.
He whisper I broke a Angel heart.
Left her for dead.
Then my heart died too.

Karma is a fair judge.
Fools who wasted love will die alone and be in hell forever.
 
He smile and slapped my back.
He tells me it is Valentine day.
Go home to your wife.
Buy her flowers and tell her how much you need and love her.
Hell is too damn full already.
 
He takes my whiskey and drinks it.
He turns away.
 
A woman sit on her porch.
She dream she is young and beautiful again.
She wishes on the first star.
Please tell Joe I forgive him and I hope he OK.
 
Old Joe died from too much whiskey.
A few of us show up and say goodbye.
We knew he died of loneliness and a broken heart.

A solace woman sit with tears.
I sit with her.
I told her what Joe told us.
 
He would be waiting in Purgatory for the one's who wasted words and the gift of love.
She kiss my cheek and walks into the street.

I leave the funeral and go to my wife.
Tell her she is my will to be alive.
 My only sweet dream.

So many mistakes we make in this lifetime...if only we could soar like the eagle and get a view of the bigger picture early on. But then, there would be no lesson, i guess. I too have been a coyote...watching from the field. Thank you for this lesson.

Coyote Poetry,
"Death will bring Peace"
When death comes we must be ready for their is no more life to live- we are done.
You did well to show how choices are made and affected by telling your story.
Sometimes people run away from pain rather than stay and try to figure it out or if impossible simply let go. Much of the time it comes down to those two things. But.......life is complex. Life is wonderful. Life confusing. Life is a mystery.
In the end a little understanding goes a long way when I run out of things to say.
Blessings,
Kathy

This write makes me think of an old country song by George Jones, "He Stopped Loving Her Today" . He Died, and yet she bothered to come to his funeral after years apart. Some people love for a lifetime, others tell every one they meet that they love them..Nice thoughtful write. Kathie

It was a great and a sweet dream that you'd seen. Liked this write..you converted into your words. Death'll bring peace, it's a nice tittle and the life's one, it's not too long to live but everyday we live it with our bad activities and make our life complicated to live, we do hate with everyone but we do spread love everywhere... we've to live with our life, with our wife with peacefully until the death comes and bring some peace. :)

I liked this write, you've dropped here some pieces' of reality in every stanza's. Keep writing such kinda great writes.

Thank you for reading and the comment. It is sad. Most of us had to learn the hard way.
This is so very beautiful. "She wished for more hellos and less goodbyes" I do believe that that is one of the most sincere lines I've ever read ..."All I have to give is flesh and bones now. Her eyes empty and sad. Her hunger now is to feel a man inside her. Her last emotion." This part is so sad and I love the way this travesty is portrayed. Thank you for a wonder poem.
