When Death Came To Me! - Poem by Joseph Tanner

Darkness filled within me,
Clouded memories of a day that I dreamt.
Many hills climbed in this turbulent life,
Now trailing over another.
Lost in another world,
Free from thought and cares of this world.
Running to an end,
Which is lost to me!
Before he gets his deathly grip on me,
Pulling me down,
Taking breath from my body.
Failing to take me with him,
I find myself searching for another meaning!
Life brought back into me,
Through a daily haze I live,
Sleeping with the ghost that was once me!

    Stellar crafting, Joseph...I was drawn to this piece, as i have always found the theme of Death & its surreal majesty, as ineffablly facinating....Well done!
