I Want 'Too Die' A Simple Death

Rating: 4.7
i want too die a simple death;
still i can not but tell..
battle field or hospital...
and when again i look..
so very deep
within your eyes..
it could be that it's just that....
i will only die again...
But even as you labor..
and i labor U.S. as one...
as once we did..

true it is personal, but the expressing way became generalized, it is special poem language created by amazing poet, let we all wonder and melt into this stanzas' world and greeting the poet: ..............................10/10.............. if it were you...held off defiant... while your hands... did other things as well..and.. each one brings me back.. from the edge... each time... too face my fate alone..

A heart-wrenching poem about the final stage of our journey. Profound. With such vivid imagery. Such very strong emotions. I was clenching my jaw. Wringing my hands. It was difficult to read...in a good way. It held my attention from beginning too end. Thank you for such powerful writing.

Magnificent expression of how death takes hold of a person, your explanation of steps it takes before getting to the end. Realizing that this is not how you want to die, but preferably just lying down and simply let go, a peaceful, uneventful death. I like this line: As you watch what's left of my life, as it runs out between your fingers and rushes towards the center and you hold on and on until that bright light, and finally it dawns. It is a poignant moment before death, a final pause in life. You have outdone yourself with this one! I give it a 10! Love it. Thank you for sharing, making me feel the intensity of this situation, and walking away pondering it all. RoseAnn
