Death Lurks

Frequently, when I am overwhelmed by emotion I write poetry. It helps sort out my feelings.

Recently I have been overwhelmed by grief and pain because of the death of 2 friends. I hereby submit:

 

Death

in it’s many guises

lurks near

to me.

I am not

afraid of her

for I have

survived

her siren song.

Yet her song

wounds me

still

for it calls

to her fatal

embrace

the ones I love.

I know not

whether

shall I ever

see, hear, touch

them

again.

Some do believe,

in angels,

demons,

ghosts,

and such.

Sadly,

I do not.

I believe

the Universe

is one giant

interconnected web

of energy.

And, I wish I

had the map

tracing the path

to the ones

I loved.
