Dead is me

Dead is me

A Poem by JulieNorell

Just a poem :P


Tell the world when I’m gone,

That I had to go sometime.

Let my heart soar through the air,

And bask in sunshine.

Leave my eyes open to the stars,

So I can feel their brilliance.

In my hand place some flowers,

So I can smell them.

Leave a kiss, soft and sweet, upon my cheek,

So I can have your memory with me.


Death is sweet,

Death is peaceful,

Dead is me.


Tell the world when I’m gone,

To let me float away.

Make a mound of burning flames,

And lay me in it.

Read my secrets to the world,

And release me.

Cut a lock of my brown curls,

To remember.

Never let your tears fall,

In the water.


Death is sweet…

Death is peaceful…

Dead is me.

Didn't like the beginning all that much, but it really came alive at the end. Real strong passionate. Coming from inside.

Maybe a good nights sleep will give you the same satisfaction? Very nice poem.

I don't really think its dark...Its just telling them to let her go, that she'll be fine and she just wants them to be happy when they remember, and that she wants to see the stars when she go's and wants to stay in the water and smell the flowers. Not dark, no HopelesslyDevoted...Just....Hopeful...And sad. :)
