Sweet Death!


On the waves
lost on a wrong place
too big and vast
and the time urges
please,
the surface!

but my breath is not the same
and i sink
breathlessness into the deep
into the blue

Am I on the ocean?
Am I on tears?

not for longer

by my numb mind
i accepted the dive
as i sink
and i find a peace
when I supposed swallow

Then i realize

how sweet is death on the sea

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

70

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
