Death knocking on my door
pounding,banging,knocking more
calling softly,whispering my name
please make him go away it's driving me insane
Death summons me to his home
home of mournful torment,he wants me to come all alone
He plays his morbid games in my nightly dreams
in his sorrowful world nothing is what it seems
Death is knocking even harder
so much more persistent then before
death is so much closer,something my heavy heart can't ignore
Life slowly slipping through my hands,silently fading
the pain grows stronger,my heart pounds fast
I am truly scared,I can't take this waiting
He is yelling now,saying that it's time
dragging me away from here,the only life he wants is mine
This is so scary, I can't seem to breathe,I can't seem to speak
my life is slowly dissipating,oh,my god I've become so weak
My eyelids are so heavy,they slowly begin to close
even though I'm dying not a soul including myself know
I can feel myself falling into this enternal state of being
as images of my life creep into what's left of my seeing
slowly reliving my life starting when I was born
to two loving parents who would cherish and adore
Twenty years eary I take my last breath and slowly die
youngness does not equal immortality
I know my life is over
I just don't know why

This is Deep ---and well done, but leaves
me wondering ----are you dying inside
or are you really dying --
I have never feared death. I know it will
happen someday -----just never know when,
but until then, will live my life to the
fullest.

Thanks for sharing
