Lie Beside Me

Lie Beside Me

A Poem by John the Baptist Unbaptised

 


              Lie beside me on this bed of regret,

          And question the speed of existence

 

                  {Baby, we are travelling through the veins of god}

 

    I want them to play your birth at my funeral


       I want them to donate my heart to sensory deprivation

 

                Slow this earth down

                         Until all time has passed,

                          And we fall weightlessly in love

 

               I love it under this thunder,

        Unscathed by extreme time stretches

 

                                For now there is nothing to fear,

                                  And now there is nothing to doubt,

                          And anything could happen to anyone forever

I love it under this thunder,

Unscathed by extreme time stretches

life is fleeting
and time is an illusion
so many good lines
within this lovely piece
of poetry..

the ending line
concludes and
comes together
nicely here

"And anything could happen to anyone forever.."

well written

Wow, beautiful life is so temporary, love traveling through the veins of God, donate the hear to sensory deprivation. So many gems as usual.

What a lovely rhythm and imagery to your poem. I just fell in love with this verse. I think I'll daydream about it today.

"Slow this earth down
Until all time has passed,
And we fall weightlessly in love"

Great write!
