A Poem by WriderParker

If the dead man could talk to us, what would he say?

Ashamed of my past faults, I remain
I avow my own iniquities
But in my vault, cut off, from confession
Leaden in my lurid and cold last home
This haunting hill is where I lay, endlessly
The worms shall eat on the tainted reeking meat
The fate of all is to suffer as I
To forever more remain in their grave
I avow my own iniquities
Ashamed of my past faults, I remain.

"The fate of all is to suffer as I" this is definitely my favorite line. great piece, love the metaphor in it and the self-evalutaion. very good imagery as well I can almost see literal worms eating a corpse

a confession anthem of sorts...realization of sins and a thorough self-realization well narrated...

This was well written and I like the symmetry in the poem. Also, your descriptions were very well and overall I enjoyed it.

Whoa! This is amazing, like the wording. I like your last two sentences.

this was good, strong, hit the nail on the head... have I been in that state? why, yes, I'm sure everyone has... the point is to not remain in that state, but I'm going to get crazy/biblical/religious and no one wants that...

again, well written...
