I Tell You Death - Poem by Vincent S. Coster

I tell you death
A wealth of fascination
I wish i could hold you
Voices of the phantom
We are tripped by madness


Real enough to make you hang

Drowned infection
Toothless grins
Hedonistic lingering kisses
Tasty snacks

I love you
Hold me
Death drives me away
Don't roll your eyes at me
Bye now


Don't forget me

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Another poem inspired by Naomi Chambers whom Vincent S Coster saw as his greatest poetic muse. This deals with his feelings at her avoiding him.
After they spent a day in Dublin with each other in which he got too high and acted clumsy, she refused to deal with him and leaving him feeling confused and bereaved somewhat. Soon love gave way to resentment. But none of that was evident yet in this unpublished poem. This too will feature in Severed Arm, the retrospective of his work which is hoped will be released next year.
