An epistle to life

Updated on September 13, 2012

An epistle to life!


Hello, life … ,

Welcome to the world of death…

its death …

so loyal as it goes till thy end.

……………………………………………

Life….. you are a dream….

which ends after every night…,

Death is beyond…..

the horizon to hold the sight.

……………………………………………………..

If I could only touch thy smile!

But it melted into some bleeding tears,

Only if I could feel your mind !

But it dressed into some creeping fears.

………………………………………………………………

Tears are the shadow of life,

Death walks along the smile.

Life…is so full of fake proceeds,

It is so filled of false promise.

…………………………………………………………….

Death does not have the silhouette……

as life cries for the loneliness,

its better to be dead

then to be so alone.

……………………………………………………….

Death is so formless…..

Life is full of a carcass,

Where only loneliness cares….

It’s better to be shapeless.

…………………………………………..

Death is the profound silence….

Life is full of lonely lullaby,

It’s better to flow in the silence

then the empty forlorn cacophony.

……………………………………………

Death will never break you

For it knows the meaning,

Death will be with you

till the end of infinity.

………………………………………

So here you come…. and lie down….

You can close your eyes

Without fear…….

Once and for all lost yourself in my embrace.

………..with love,

Forever yours,

Death……!

……………………………………………..

P. S. : Life is dead now….!!!!!!!!

Peaceful at last with so much truth…..

Life is so happy now…..

Some smiles are singing the pure lullaby.

Life is sleeping …….in the arms of death.

It’s the evergreen world of pure passion!

      I gave this poem a vote up for Awesome and interesting, I like your style of poetry as I have told you once before, and oh thanks for the cool follow, hit me up and FB if you like.

      To embrace death is to embrace life, and I think you have come to terms with it all, I just think that to embrace living is to fully encompass the positive attributes of it in every way imaginable. I like this poem but it was somewhat gloomy, so it has stolen my love for it, LOL.

      I do sense the sarcasm in it though if in fact it was also meant to be a sort of humorous way to express the love of life and death. I'm simply being as honest as I can be in worded form, you know.

      Cheers to great poetry, because in terms of the morbid aspects of death and life this poem is quite exceptional & uniquely well written.

      Interesting portrayal and the dynamics of life and death. I used to see life as full of "Carcass" and then realized that it was I that was cheating "life" not the other way around: both phases are simply a continuum of more to come...well done!

      hmmm this life is something else and yet we never really want to let go and die, because death is another story. I think we can only welcome death fully when we live with a hope to live with Christ eternally, we learn to live the life we've got and embrace death when she knocks.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Interesting spin on life and death. I have to drive by a cemetary every day I go out, and see the grave diggers often out and about getting ready for yet another buriel. It is sad to see a place set up for the family's to see the final resting place of a loved one once full of life. Voted your poem up!

      Heartbreaking sometimes, witty, deep, but all lay under a blanket of STUNNING! Your sensitivity, imagination, and soulfulness always amaze me but never more so than this offering of yours.. I think I can relate (often actually), at the suggestion of comfort in death, but I am so very selfish of the nourishment my heart feels around all those I love - a double edged sword. Voted Awesome, Beautiful Awesome, and Up. Much love deergha * you've done it again.... hugs Dotti

      Oh Wow! This certainly is a spectacular poem! One I'd read over and over because there's so much to discover in your words.

      "It's better to be dead, than to be so alone" Those words rang a bell and sing with me through the course of my life, remembering how close I was to death...to silence and peace.

      Now I find peace in life, silence is a beautiful noise and death is something I never fear. Thanks for this wonderful poem!

      Many writers, it seems are a bit frightened to mention "comfort" in death, but what I've read out of your poem is that. Its wonderfully written, and I like that you have mentioned death not in a way as "poor piety me" but in a very REAL way. I was discussing just this thing with a friend a few weeks ago. We hear so much about how to avoid death, and especially in the United States we try our hardest to whisper about death, when in reality that is something we all share. Death is something we can definitely depend on although we may share differences on how or what happens. We all leave here. In a way that is comforting to me. Life shows us too many differences, death shows that we are all the same. Voted up and beautiful!

      Deep and viscera, Deergha.

      My view of the subject is that life 'has' only one time-frame: the moment in which it exists for someone who is aware of it. As for a life-span between birth and death, it is self-explanatory. It is a 'span', which says it begins at some moment and ends at some moment after that. Death is the completion of the span.

      All during the span, an aware individual has constant 'real-time' choices of how to live those moments filled with operating vital signs: - heart beating, breath pumping, mind and feelings aware. The moments 'have' only whatever the individual furnishes them in experience, flow and keenness of awareness as they vibrate with life.

      Everything in the future is simply not life -- not yet, maybe never for the person. So in that sense, death is out there in any moment from the next to the next after the next after the . . . . It is not fearsome or gruesome. It is merely the completion of the span, when no more moments of lively awareness or choice - as we've known them - will flow through that person.

      As you so astutely point out, many 'live' in a state of death, by being unaware of and non-responsive to those lively moments in progress. Whether or not death will bring another form of life, is what our trained ability to respond (response-abiltiy) will know then. Our opportunity now is to learn to live.

      I love your depth and sensitivity! Your writing style carries it well!

      Thank you dear Nellieanna,

      For your heartfelt comment in the above. I do agree about the whole span of death that just flows through many times, at least that's what is my belief. Limitless is the journey till the end of end but this is a process of choices to be continued for yet another life time may be which we hardly have a control on. Anyways I really value your view on my style and writing here. Thanks once again. God bless you always

      take care.
