Death Fall

They told me to
Fly on toward tomorrow
They told me to
Leave all my sorrow
To spread my wings
And leap and soar
But I'm not listening
Because it's done
It's gone
I've made a choice
Now just move on,
Paste a smile
And here we go
Just fake awhile
Don't ever show
They told me so,
And here I sit,
Broken, used,
Abandoned, Bruised
Here I stay
until a new day,
but even then
I'm all alone,
Cold as stone,
It's over
Now I've learned
Now I've grown
I've spread my wings,
All oon my own
Not knowing height
Not knowing fear
The sky collapsed
The earth drew near,
Crashing burning
Down toward the earth
Sinking falling
Right through death, yes
I've surpassed death
With too much pain
I wasn't accepted
Now I know,
Never to let go
Just to keep it tucked
Inside myself
To keep my pain
On that old shelf
Till it comes pouring out my pen
I relive death
All again
And here I sit
Never to
Fly or sing,
It's over,
I'm dying

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
