Nick Andrew Smith


Death


Death is when my loved ones must depart
Death is a sharp pain in my heart
Death is this feeling of permanent sadness and pain
Death is when my loved ones have gone away
Death is the call to heaven or hell
Death is an eternal mansion or cell
Death is the lesson i need to learn about
Death is a loss, without a doubt
Death is this unhappy feeling i have
Death is pleasant on my behalf
Death is the day i end my life
Death is when i give up the fight
Death is happiness to the world around me
Death started when i gained my life
Death can be helped along with this knife
Death is where i shall go
Death is close, i kno
Death willl come fast
Death is vast
Death is what i see
Death lives inside of me
Death is joy to me
Death has come for me
Death is gonna take me
Death will stop my misery
Death loves my company
Death ends the pain
Death takes me on that train
Death is near
Death is finally here

    The poem 'death' by 'Nick Andrew Smith' is about deaths aftermath.
    The poem gives a description of how you feel after the death of a loved person.
    From the beginning till the end the poem expresses the pain of the sitiuation
    you´re in when you lose a loved person.
    The poem uses an image of coldness and sadness to express the sad feelings that
    are linked with the death.
    The function of the image is to show how hard it is to handle the death of a loved person.
    By the repeating of the word 'death' which introduces every line
    and the use of short lines the tense atmosphere of the poem is emphasized
    The poems consists of metaphors, paradoxons, personifications and repetitions.
    An example for a used paradox is l.5 - 'Death is the call to heaven or hell'
    is written. Heaven and hell are opposites that are given a common sense in this poem.
    The same thing was made in l.6 - 'Death is an eternal mansion or cell'.
    The metaphors are used like in every line. e.g. l.2 - 'Death is a sharp pain in my heart'
    Personifications are used often - e.g. l.21 - 'Death lives inside of me'
    Death isn´t able to live, so it´s a kind of paradox again.
    There is also a development in the poem.
    While in the first stanza the poet is writing about the death of other people
    and how the dead lives in himself etc.
    In the last stanzas he writes about the relation with the death and himself.
    That the death is also going to get him. And in the last Stanzas the death got him.
    By this all you get another image. An image of caducity.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
