Death - Poem by Adisa Oludare Enitan

‘O lame saint!
teller of good lies
giver of affections
lover without deceit

Unsullied beau
with shining teeth
like autumn's sun

An epitome of ruinous beauty
stealer of hopes and dreams
flawless servant
with inimitable loyalty

Oh your touch!
a passkey to yonder
desert of vast eternity

All conquering warrior
slave to fate
the dreadful enemy
who takes without asking

Unanticipated guest
le dernier cadeau
of all men

    This poem about death seems to engage it as a living presence. +++10

    Death is a process, yes a process that all living things face. There are no surprises there. Iprefer poetry about life it is more wonderous.
