he once cheated death

he once cheated death

A Poem by keith moncus

the now broken man

he once cheated death 

in his earlier life
the now broken man had purpose
he knew direction he knew the flame 
that bound others 
his burning sensation has been faulted
by the untrue words of another
being led down a path of deception
he was not the true love of that other
but rather a story told so wrong
many times he had just given up
willingly seeking death as way of avoidance
in effort to keep the hurt at bay
he tried yet again for the umpteenth time
but found no win for his efforts
he once thought he cheated death 
no death cheated him 


suicide is no joke
seek help
