ON DEATH: TWO POEMS

Updated on December 10, 2012

Leaden, heavy heart
Every death wears you out
Like leaves that fall, people part
The world devoid of their presence, without
Their memories, their thoughts
Their speech, their honour and value
The ties to mortality are frail knots
Forever shall hang the sorrowful hue
Just like that, their touch is whisked away
Sorrow for a moment, our lives, shall sway

But life goes on and on and on
Stumped and defeated, weak and lorn
We carry on forward
Glancing homeward
And make new friendships, relationships
As life with every tick of the clock, softly drips
Pale skin shall be our eternal complexion
With glassy, fish like eyes of the dead
We accept this incomplete explanation
And for temporal sleep, lay down our head

-----------------

Death every where
Its foul countenance's steely stare
Sucking life from the marrow
Drenching the world in sorrow
None to replace the stead of the dead
None to stop the tears, heart like lead
Does it even care about what it does
Empty are our words that bless
The bereaving
Their ranting heaving
Is this all our life
Where's the end to this strife
God, turn not a blind eye
Look down on the wretched from high
Pity their wretched sigh
Relieve us of the lie
That there is peace in life
For when you plunge deep death's knife
You take away their breath and will
And expect them to bear with it, still
Death darkens the threshold door
And misery and pain shall flourish once more
Reliving memories in solitary woe
This, they shall reap whatever they sow

      These are great Sharon. They are heartfelt, poignant and so sad. However you are too young for such poems. You need to write about love, joy and life. You are a very creative poet but leave the sad stuff to later years. Hugs.
