You Are Dead Poem by Hebert Logerie

You Are Dead



You were once strong
Never wrong
Now you are dead
I have so much pain
To swallow this verbena
You are indeed dead
I have so much pain
Deep in my heart, no stamina
And of course no legs
It's raining cats and dogs
I weep, wail and cry
I suffer, smother and die
I don't know what's going in my bones
Through me, what's rocking and shaking me
And causing controversy
Where the sky is littered with drones
You were so pretty
And obviously so strong
But now you're dead
No, this is not a song
I do not know what to do
If I should scream and shut up
I do not know what to do
If I should put up or give up
Or let drown deep in me
The heavy sorrows and the fatal weights
Now everything annoys me
The day and the night
I cannot find the right
Detour on the freeways
Too many roadblocks and setbacks
Too many dregs that won't go down
The pipes in downtown
Now you are dead
And I am utterly sad.
