The Living And The Dead Poem by Dave Alan Walker

The Living And The Dead

Rating: 4.2


As the wind blows
Through the spirits
Of the dead

We feel the shivers
Upon our spines
As our souls intertwine
Like ivy through a loop fence

We know we are alive
But could soon be dead

As breathing
Is the only thing
That divides
The living and the dead

Very good poem, dark yet unavoidable subject matter lends such strength to it, wonderfully written.

So true, very thin line between life and death. I loved how you skillfully econocomised words but still wrote a great write.
