Rendezvous - Poem by Sally Plumb Plumb

Death, I am here
waiting with the darkness
that you collect
in your velvet casket.
The pretty stars that were
my childlike eyes
have lost their light.
I am as cold and still
as a statue,
but without fright.
There are no shadows here
to worry me.
I cannot call to you
but you will hear my silence,
it is quieter than velvet.
You will carry me with ease
because I no longer exist.
Darkness lay me softly
on your black pillow of night.

    No shadows in the dark. Yes, very insightful. Time seems to wear us into invisibility, and what need the invisible fear? (Report) Reply
