The Women Of Death - Poem by Emma Kessler

The women of death
Loom over the heartbroken
Weighing down upon them
Speaking the only words they know
'Why didn't you? '
'What if? '
For hearing these words can kill us
Even more than the loss

    A wonderful poem! ! ! Although Emma is still defining her own style in writing poems, she shared with us in this one, one of the most intriguing questions of the human being: 'Why can't we change terrible happenings in our lives? ''How could we find out other ways to end an unpredictable situation? 'My advice is: 'Let the life in itself answer this question for us! ! ' (Report) Reply

    I liked the psychological overtones; dealing with the women of death is one of lessons of life, or being condemned to perpetual guilt. (Report) Reply

    This to me is the most interesting work you have. I love the concept of 'the women of death'. But I want more. Is it ok to ask for that? Expand on the concept and make this piece longer. (Report) Reply
