When Death Postulates

Updated on September 24, 2015
Source

Daunting spirits bump into one another in the night

For cause and effect in regards are meaningful insights.

Time has never been a problem for your swarthy soul,

As you were one so suave and in imminent control.


Oddly enough, meeting you again beyond time

Goes past a measure and over the borderline.

It appears to me that your true self now shows

But forgive the intrusion while I superimpose


My thoughts and actions in another place and plane

For my rudeness and supposition is most inhumane.

You know that Willow could never please her daddy,

Who oftentimes used to overindulge in bottles of brandy.


And that’s why nobody can ever please Willow

Who saved those tears until the privacy of her pillow.

And yet her pugilistic nature took hold

In the ways of the wind, so uncontrolled.


And then I watch over my dear sister as I can

But the missing wisdom of dear Solomon

Goes beyond what little sense I possess

And my untimely death dissuades me, nonetheless.


In her own way she feels responsible for my demise

And continues to beat herself up and sensationalize

What little sense is left of the summer nights,

And how she lived those terrible lies.


And here we are, two sunken ships in the night

Afraid of cobwebs and other beings never to reunite

With what’s left of our families once again

But what’s a part of life we still try to maintain


Ties with life even though we’ve left that state

Incapable of what we might have become or postulate

How to save ourselves from the fate of the accident

Could unseemingly, and in confusion misrepresent


How we became separated in finality. Then I question

Through insidious misimpression

How we stumbled upon each other once again

But through death, must our current lives be arcane?

      This one is very interesting aviannovice. I felt death and darkness reading this and the secrets one takes to the grave. It engulfs sadness along with the intent to stay strong through life and finally letting the fight go in death.

      I don't know if I read it right, this is just the feel I got from your words. I thought your poem very intriguing. Quite a mystery, which I liked! :)

      We'll discuss it a lot more on the other side, Frank. I'll keep us in rainforest coffee.

      It wasn't meant to be dark, Frank. It was meant to show what could be on the other side. It cannot be anything like it is here.

      Hey, Sha! Deep yes, but not so dark. I just have a questioning mind, and there's no telling where it will run. Thanks for visiting.

      This is a deep and dark poem, Deb. Your poetry is always impressive no matter from which realm it escapes your mind to find an audience.

      I always said that I wasn't much of a poet, Suhail. Maybe I doubted myself too much.

      Well, this poem with deep meanings shows your other very creative and thinking side, Deb. Very impressive indeed!

      Hey, Mary! Oh, p'shaw...I think to keep death in the wings and not be too concerned about it is the biggest part of enjoying life. However, once it happens, can we help those that we left? We shall have to see...

      Hey, Dave! There a lot out there to question, and it feels right to drop our own opinions in there once in a while. Thanks for your support.

      There is truly a tale beyond what we read here. You've given us an insight into "their" lives and make us wonder what was the accident and how does "sister" fare? This is a brilliant poem that needs to be read over and over.

      What fluid thoughts flow in this hub...it speaks of some aspects of our existence as humans and what is embedded in the seeds of our evolution...life and then death.

      Poignant and very much enjoyable that I have to read it twice.

      Love from the sky~

      Linda, as they all do, it hot me in a blinding flash. To me, death is nothing to fear, for it is another adventure in itself.

      Deb, your poetry might be the best-kept secret at HP, and that's too bad for all those who never read it. :)

      Hi,

      A deep poem that touched my heart and at the same time I wanted to say a prayer because death comes so quickly many times. We never have enough time to say goodbye.

      Another one I will have to read again with a clearer head after watching the Redskins lose another one.
