Put Me Under.

Put Me Under.

A Poem by Diana

Put me under
because I don't want
to feel the ground shake
from the surface.

Put me under,
so that I do not have to feel
the chill draft upon my face.

Put me under. 
Put me under.

Lay me down
to rest.

okay, this is so "Poe"---i felt the draft....
okay here is more...on how i felt this poem.

this is personal..the way things are going in this country and the world, i look down the road 20 years and really feel i would rather be ashes than live in what this society is becoming...unfortunately i am not seeing real change for the better on the horizon.

i find this poem to be very powerful on a personal level...like you were writing me.

Glad my writing seems to be "speaking to you." Thank you, Jacob.

Thanks for clarifying. I never like to assume, so I'm a walker of "tentative footsteps" at times.read more

Thank you so much.
I certainly hope that if it were to happen, it would be the right time - when I have achieved my purpose here and when The Creator calls me to be with Him. Never by any other means. Never to any other place but Home.

Well, I'm glad you feel that way about yourself.
Diana, this is quite sad, but I really like how you have built such desperate emotions in such a short piece.

Hah hah. I guess that's my card. Thanks, willweb.
Some days it would be easier to lay it all down - but on we trudge, amid the chill and shaking... brief but powerful piece, Diana.

Thanks, Rita.
A wide open poem. Made me wish to know and read more. Decisions are heavy upon us sometimes. Can't figure what we are and what is our purpose? I like the logic. In the final grave. No regret, no love. Just return to dust and dirt. Thank you for sharing your poetry. You always test my old mind.

Wow. A powerful and chilling reality we all face daily. Choosing between the two darkness and loneliness in the two graves. Excellent...:)......

Powerfully dark emotions in this one. Sometimes life is so difficult to face. Still, it beats the alternative. Well written, Diana. Lydi**
