Treasure Island

Kelly Seale

'No One Gets Out Of Here Alive'


Death is not envious, jealous, or proud- She is extreme.
For just the thought of Her, makes us tremble,
And as She draws closer, louder than loud…
You scream.
You allow yourself time to bleed,
You open your eyes to the
deep, rich flow of Her crimson greed.
You feel your pulse quicken,
As your tears fall and mingle
with the dark red stain-
The human stain.
The doors that you opened,
And the windows to your soul-
Are the words that were broken,
As Death, swallows you whole.
Flesh turns into ashes,
Sunshine turns to rain-
Death takes you into Her arms,
Never to return again.
And the sadness lingers in their hearts and minds,
how will they ever survive.
Just don’t let Her door slam shut behind you…
Because No One Gets Out Of Here Alive!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

(A Tribute piece for Ray Manzarek, Jim Morrison and The Doors.)

But more importantly, this is about sucide. Over the last several weeks, I have read a number of poems that reflect this, and I'm very concerned. I know that writing is a great release... but so is cutting, huffing, choking, and many other death-like vises that you may choose to endevour... but listen to me... listen to my words-
Reach out to someone. Reach out to Me! If things pile up on you so hard that you feel that death is the only way out...and I will help you find the light. I will be your friend. I will devour your words as sustanance... and share my words with hopes of a smile, a tear, or any thing that makes you feel when you feel like not feeling anything anymore. OK? ; -) -Kelly.

    The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead.

    Wow. That was crazy good, and intense. I loved it. You are so kind to say these things and try to reach out. More people should do that. Thanks for the inspiration. (Report) Reply

    I don't know if this makes sense, but as I read this poem I could see this caractature of death sweeping over alleyways and abandoned buildings. Hopefully this made readers realize playing with death can put you out of the game permanently. And your notes were so kind. Great job! (Report) Reply

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
