burning bridges

burning bridges

A Poem by joshua deathdealer

"
How I revel in the darkness
that has consumed and is
destroying me. The sound
of dirt hitting my closed
casket is like unto a
long awaited concert.

Thud Thud Thud

When you live to die,
time is such a nasty thing.
Dragging by as the sun
burns lines in my skin.
Day after day after dreaded
day. I never wanted this life.

Take it back. Put it into 
someone who actually 
might give a damn. Someone 
who may take it and use it on
a better purpose for I have
burned all my bridges.

I have laid in waste for so
long that the buzzards 
circle overhead while I
bleed out steadily yet slowly. 
Understand that the brave die 
and walk the same.

Sweetness= that totally rocked.I knew I would read a great thing from you. Anyways I loved the flow with this as everything came pouring out I could not stop reading. I really favored the ending "understand the brave die and walk the same." Everywhere we go we cross a bridge leading us to another but, eventually it feels all the bridges are gone and closed.Lleaving us alone with death shadowing us behind. Well done.

This poem made me sad. If you die before your time that's just going to be devastating to all the people that love them. You need to live for those people because they need you. It was a powerful piece and it was an enjoyable read. But don't get yourself killed. Thanks for sharing.
