Dichotomy of The Soul

The dark angel of death hovers o’er my life.
Know I it’s time to put my affairs in order
To begin my final journey.

From this home I shall travel to another
Where pain and suffering are nevermore,
And my cry for death ends.

The veil between life and death shall part.
Death of one shall live as journey ends,
And life of one shall die.

Only the ashes remain......


Sheila Bowyer Kline

“The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends and where the other begins?” Edgar Allen Poe

Tomorrow is promised to no one, so enjoy the day if you should be fortunate enough to wake in the morning to see another one! And maybe a good idea to put your affairs in order, just incase!

A thought provoking, imaginative, spooky poem my favourite type !

one thing we can hope is that more than ashes remain when we are gone...we leave something worthwhile behind...our writing maybe?

at least that is evidence we were here.

enjoying visiting your page, Sheila...and so sorry i am not here more often...i seem to have missed several of your latest.

Edgar Allen Poe took a depressing view of things. The veil is not between life and death, but this life and another.t

Thanks Sasha!! Poe is always good inspiration for a write on the dark side!
From the day we are born, we are headed for death....a rather bleak outlook, but truthful nonetheless. That EAP quote truly inspired a wonderful write. Honest and raw, the emotions you express reach into the soul. The presentation is artful. Great work. Lydi**

You got me to read another dark poem! The title was what drew me to this write. I've read it several times and you've said so much in three verses! You have captured not only the "Dichotomy or The Soul", but the dichotomy of life we all live and face, but try to ignore. Intriguing, captivating and well done!!
