Lost, confused, and abandoned by reason
Stripped bare in the midst of a cruel winter season
Consummate victim of the Great Fall
In crippling pain and now forced to crawl
On knees not accustomed to bending,
On thorny and harsh, rocky ground,
With abiding dreams of an ending
To the pain he sees all around
And sleepless dreams unrelenting,
A Peace that will never come…
A Love that has left him alone…
A Life of squandered splendor…
And a Death to suit such a one!

Look! There he is!

Look! There he is!
Death is on these walls
Death is in this air
Death is on this ground
Don’t you see him?
He’s standing next to me
Whispering in my ear
He’s with me right now
Can’t you see him?
Death is behind you
He’s breathing down your neck
Death is close
Don’t you feel him?
Death is caressing me
He’s holding me close
He’s whispering sweet things
Don’t you see?
Can’t you feel him?

Look! There he is!

I’ve fallen for it….
did yew ever?!….
felt heart-numbness??…
i’m witnessin’ it,….
it cant be compared less
than the vows of abyss….
i get it…love is a light ray
in the pits of darkness
but it effect like steroid…
it makes you feel stronger
but sooner or later,
it kills you like a hater
‘n dead men tells no tale…
they ended,being a victim of this mere love
love is difficult n effective…
but its real,just a lil’ much absurd
confronted by hatred…
all i see is abyss blood
solitude neve’ bothered me n
the monster livin’ inside
i’m levitating like a bird…
like a bird inside an emotion’s cage…
Neve’ knew this me,i guess
my feelings are at war,
t’is called,heart numbness…
n I’m witnessin’ it!!
can i ever get out?!….
wit’ hope i fought…
could i ever get that throne
of hapiness,i guess maybe not…
but i do know,its worth fighting for…
on the road of carnage,i see a flash
its….its …..its death itself…
i wont flee perhaps em afraid….
let it be,i’m ready to fade away….
darkness neve’ teased my peace anyway…

This Feeling Called Grief

This heartache this sadness
this feeling of pain
to think I’ll never hear your voice
or see your face again

The loneliness without you
is beyond belief
I can’t come to terms with
this feeling called grief

It’s so hard to describe just how I feel
without you beside me
time has only stood still

I sit for hours in your favourite chair
talk to your photo
wishing you were there

I touch your clothes & start to weep
I hug your pillow
& try to sleep

Life must go on
I suppose it’s true
but a day doesn’t pass
without thinking of you

To treasure your memory
I must carry on
but nothing else matters
now that you’ve gone.

If Roses Grow In Heaven | Death Poems


If roses grow in Heaven Lord
please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my mother’s arms
and tell her they are from me.
Tell her i love her and miss her,
and when she turn to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek,
and hold her for awhile.
Because remembering her is easy,
I do it every day,
But there is an ache within my heart
that will never go away

Staring at you Pictures | Death Poems


I’m looking at my child, a picture in a photo album,
Gathered memories, pictures with tears upon them.

God came and took you who made my life complete,
And all that’s left are pictures, and an empty seat.

I also have a feeling deep down within my heart,
It’s the pain of emptiness, since we’ve been apart.

I try not to let the grief and sorrow overcome my day.
I’ll blow a kiss to heaven and send it on its way.

I’m living with a heavy heart feeling all so blue.
Asking God to take me up, so I can fly with you.

I’m waiting for the day you come calling out my name,
Until then I’ll be staring at your pictures, life will never be the same.
