Death Is A Poem

Death Is A Poem

....death, such sweet sorrow


Death Is A Poem



death comes in many forms

but mostly from

arrogant verbs

nouns and adjectives

that leads to untold horrors

and untimely death


“i love you”

a death sentence

having me walk

the green mile

to a last supper

of grief spiked desert

until the swallowed poison

reaches my heart

and into a poem


a poem written

with bloody fingers

from pieces of my heart

A broken heart is the inspiration for so many poems. The imagery here is powerful. Those pieces of the heart write the best poetry. Very "nice", Curt. Lydi**

living is the poem, as Melanie sang...but death is also a poem...
and we write of death and sorrow with such a fluid ink...
seems easier even though the pain is so hard.
