Death’s Too Near

Death, you’re standing rather near!
Don’t you understand the fear
You trigger deep within my soul–?
The terror sprung by such a ghoul
Of dark and hideous hue!

Now you’re rattling on my door!
I’m sure I threw you out before –
Methinks you really need to learn!
So leg it please and ne’er return
To haunt me ‘gain, now shoo!

Gain a sense of social pride, and
Keep your bearing far and wide –
Perform the deed when I am done –
Be free and loose to have your fun
When I’m too frail to turn and run,
But now I’ve living to do!

    Read a few of your poems, love them. Love the darkness
    In them...a few of my poems on death are dark and some
    Are like this one..viewing death in a not so drabby way.

    sometimes you look at some actors as if they are acting but believe me one of them got a deal with the real devil to act the devil himself so he enter him for ever and he never knew till the end came, when he owned him completely.... be wise where famous took you my friend! !
