Inviting Death

Inviting Death

A Poem by Warren L.G De Mills

Death breathes it's lively breath


Prevailing against all vanity in life


Surpassing the strongholds Sorrow


calming grief, joy and pain



Death would you lay with me


Bereave me of my earthly woes


Lift me from the nightly throes


Lay me down to rest in peace



Forever this silent solitude


Shall be unfathomable


To all those still breathing


And those soon to come



Vain is all the laughter


As vain are all the smiles


For it soon will turn pain


The Joy will turn to grief



"How I long for the freedom


Of knowing nothing of my travail


How I yearn for this careworn heart


To forsake every emotion learnt"



"O death will your cold caress


accept the warmest invitation


My warm skin longs for your


Frozen embrace of Ignorance


And of Bliss....”

Wow, I was reading this jaw open, intensely into this:P Wonderful! Though sad, heartbroken even, but so well written:)

I love this! Beautiful piece. It's also how i look at death. I know people fear it. But to me, somehow i find peace in it. Not that I want to end my life..but there are times where i've had my breakdowns and death gave me comfort. But of course, i'd love to achieve my goals before my time.. but overall, that's up to fate. And this poem made me feel melancholy yet simple joy in it because I can relate. I love this and i enjoyed it! Thanks for writing.

Warren, this poem makes me think of my 100 year old aunt, just before she died. Beautiful choice of words.

For certain people in certain circumstances, death is a mercy.

Death can be welcoming, and again death can be something you don't want to face. Nice read indeed.

This is nice--a calling of sleep after a long, toiling life
