'The Songs of A Dead Man'


I am now a dead
man,
I can see clear
but can't talk to
the earing of anyone.

Not even my wife
nor my children
could hear me talk,
I sees them,
I feels them with
my presence,
But invisible as
they can't see
nor feel me.

I now cry but
none can hear
nor comprehend
my agony,
Though I do not
blame them since
I died in silence.

I would had
reveal to them
my secrete before
my exit,
Now I'm restless.

But uptill this
moment,
I still hangs
around the living,
Since I can't
rest without
speaking to their
earing,
My secrete.

Oh my God,
I'm helpless,
What should I do? ,
Or I would go
back to the world,
Oh no I can't! ,
I'm now a dead man.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
