If I Were to Die Today

If I were to die today
I would not want rose petals around me in tradition's array
Nor my friends gathered in their dark clothes and evil smiles
For what would be worth all their traveled miles?

Don't speak of me when i'm gone
Forget my name and plz carry on
For the days spent were selfishly so
And I wouldn't want attenion just because it's my turn to go
No crying eyes, or soft lullabye
Just a hm, and one final goodbye

Rest my strained body
Not in the earth
But in the ocean
For what it is worth
Just leave me there to stay
And with one quick motion all will be done and the shadows can forever be cast away
For life was short as will be my last farewell
Yes even on my own personal dooms day
Yes on the final day of breaking the spell

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
