Should We Taste Death...

Should we be death
we will feel how
it feels to be the death

should we be death
we will know how
it feels to play the death

should we be death
we will surely feel
the agony of the death

should we be death
we will see their tears
as they depart away from life

should we be death
we will understand
the mystery of breathlessness

should we be death
we will know if there
are some myth called spirit world

should we be death
we will fear death
no more

should we be death
we will surely tell
the stories are different

should we be death
and come back to life
we will wish not to die again...

    I think we should not taste death because it is very painful to part from friends. Thanks John (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
