K.C. Ford

(not dead yet / crowle)

T.H


Drug induced sleep
Deceives watching eyes
Gathered around the dying bed
that you pass peacefully into oblivion.

No blaze of glory, no glorious end,
No stampeding hooves
Over the horizon hammering
Clear into history.

You died alone. Each alone
we suffer what we cannot share,
we endure until the moment cracks
and the will slips through.

All that remains is the mourners grief,
The anguish, the vacant loss,
The darkness out side the curtained window;
the cold enduring night.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A number of years ago I was walking past a news stand when I saw the headline in a local paper that Ted Hughes had died of cancer. It was this that inspired this poem.

    Very good usage of descriptive adjectives throughout the poem, as well as very well placed verb usages to captivate a visual effect of the emotion expressed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
