I Was About To

I was about to kiss death,
And knew how dark is it!
One night went out of my hand,
but, I couldn't get any glimpse.
Awaiting death or enjoying life,
I'm now in dilemma.

    One may have death at any time but life, at least this type of life one may not get again. Don't remain in dilemma. Life is to love and to be loved. (Report) Reply

    Dilemma is better than death. Death closes all doors. Enjoy life with open doors. (Report) Reply

    Oh what makes a dilemma? Two birds in the hand? Kisses that make you blue?
    Death comes with no options. But options does in enjoying life.
    I was about to... well just write a poem about the death of enjoying life. (Report) Reply

    That is a dilema! Are you being pulled by both sides?
    Time to stay or get on a white horse and ride?
    There are no wrong answers.
    Stop by here on your way out, if you choose that.
    Much loving kindness to you

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
