Nothing But Death Comments

Rating: 3.3

There are cemeteries that are lonely,
graves full of bones that do not make a sound,
the heart moving through a tunnel,
in it darkness, darkness, darkness,

...

Pablo Neruda

' caskets sailing up the vertical river of the dead, the river of dark purple, ' - Also, adored this line. ^ Xx NDS

'but it seems to me that its singing has the color of damp violets, ' 'the broom is the tongue of death looking for corpses, it is the needle of death looking for thread.' - Too many outstanding lines to paste, but those were a few. I didn't even realize I clicked on Neruda. I kept saying 'this user needs to be discovered, ' and then see it's Pablo. Such an absolute master of the craft. pretty words for even the un-pretty things which define existence. Xx NDS

Death is peaceful people, what terrorizing is the fear of death. Amazingly written mate.

here is a poem I wrote myself it is called If I died if I died, would you cry or just lie, and say good-bye would you say hi if you saw my mom cry just say naw, and open a new door, and walk away would you shut the door, cuz I am no more finally under the floor board I am down, in the ground never to be found just always be, dead you'll see you never loving me, can't even see me never to be loved or carried above always in the ground, never to be found like dirt, on a misplaced mound never to hear a sound but quiet darkness

however how quickly that you forget that Osiris, god of death had a green face. Green is not always associated with life.

because the face of death is green, and the look death gives is green, green to many societies is a symbol of life. like grass, life spreads. however, this is a very skilful though not particularly accurate portrayal of death.
