Do you feel my pain?

Do you hear my cry?

Does it make you gain

Seeing me this way?


No! I do not like it

When I see you cry

There is nothing I can do to stop it

Helpless, I also pay.


I try to be strong

Hoping you will one day come

But, I have waited far too long

Now, my heart is withered and no longer strong

Frail, almost gone.


I try as hard as I can to make it last

Snatching time as much as I dared

To put you in my thoughts and mind

But, now it all comes to pass

The greatest fear I held


**** Death! ****

  1. ,………nice write, this temporal life is nothing but an abode of time. Death is inevitable.

    Hope u see more than the concept of “death” for its sake?

    There is more to this than that.

    All the same, Merci.

  3. Nice work…..toms up….and nice concept

  4. death…conversion to another state

  5. I fink the real question should be: ‘death’ of what?

  6. Okay. Death of what?

    1. Death of ‘time’ itself. Time to make right, all that went wrong and can’t or might not be redeemed cos dey r dead!

      1. I see! That’s a good one…

  7. death is humanity’s one true reference point
    all men and women die
    whether by choice or by force
    let’s live well today
    for tomorrow will come with some of us already gone
    life is precious
    and death may not be bitter as thought

    1. Thank u very much for going through this work. “Death” as the theme is only a means to an end in this piece.

      1. truly true………………………………………………
