To The Fallen


Upon this beautiful web of lies
I sleep and rest my head
Unbeknownst to all the other
The me they knew is dead
He died nearly five years ago
In the exact spot that I lay
And the last words he uttered were
I shall find peace upon this day

    Very nice poem. I think I would edit it:
    The me they knew is dead

    (I would take out 'that' in the beginning of line 4.) (Report) Reply

    Very well written, short and concise.Only we know in our hearts who we truely are, only those outside know what we choose to show them.The world is a stage and we play many characters in our interaction with our fellow man. (Report) Reply

    Vasto brilliant. The me they knew died. But the you, you know lives, beyond the poem, seeping through the pores of sky and winds. Classic. (Report) Reply
