death has a way
of assuring you
that he is your
only friend;

he's the only
one that will
stay with you
whenever you
reach the end
i am back to my sad morbid stuff
and it feels good,
i feel like i've ignored death for too long

(and i haven't posted a poem in a while because i received a few hurtful messages
last week and i'm ashamed to say i let them get inside my head. but now i'm just going to post
whatever the hell i want. and if you don't like it, please lump it, because i do)

Your poem reminds me of a mediveal (sorry for the mispelling) allegory play. In it a man was told he was going to die. He appealed to Wealth, Friends, Lust, and Luxuries (paraphrasing because I don't remember "exactly" what the play referred to them as) to come with him into Death, and they all refused. The only thing that followed him was a small Faith.

The difference between your poem and that allegory play is that the speaker of the poem realizes that not even Faith can follow into death. We are alone, though we try not to feel as if we are. You've given our subconcious a voice our concious mind must now listen to.

you could get millions of wonderful messages, but the hurtful ones are the ones that really stick.
it's kind of sick how masochistic our own bodies and brains are.

i ridiculously love all of your stuff, sad or not.

it's nice to see you here (even though i'm late, i'm late.)

oh but this is such a beautiful poem. it strikes a chord in me, for having had to switch schools and friend circles so often, having been forgotten by essentially all those whom I have met, I feel like I will have no one for long, that no one will have me for long. life is a casting off, but death is comforting in its unwavering, immutable eternity. not that I seek it, not that I hope for it, but at the end of my life when there is no one but death and I, it would come as a friend.

this is such a moving poem!

Good poem! But please don't let the jerks get to you! : ( I know it's really hard but try to accept they will say mean things, talk it out with a friend, and then do things you like to do like bike-riding or going to the movies! Forget their harsh words. They are jerks for saying mean things. Unfortunately I'm dealing with one at my work right now. It's not fun but we can raise above their cruel words.

Its beautiful! Dear all your poems are so incredible, I remember when you gave me a llama and I was just in shock that such an awesome writer would pay attention to *me*! Please don't listen to those ignorant good-for-nothing losers, they need to get a life.  They are only jealous you write with a (dare I say it) supernatural ability. Don't give up! That's the reaction they want! Stay strong, I know you can do it. :hug:

This is gorgeous, I'm glad you're back to writing about Death (Our Old Friend).
Morbidity is always welcome in my book, and with your magical use of words
and the ever enchanting Death as a theme,
I'll be head over heels<3

'Death reassures you
that his intentions are good
Don't you need a rest?

Life is so long & tiring
Come, lie still in his embrace.'


I love your poems. They are each so beautiful - concise, poignant, and most impressive of all, so very true.

The best defense against archers is to not let their barbs stick. I know it's hard, but try not to let them bother you. You needn't try to please anyone but yourself - the rest of us are just along for the ride, and very pleased to be here :D
Love what you do, and keep doing it - that's the ultimate act of defiance.

there's nothing wrong with writing about death, or any subject that may seem depressing. I personally don't see how someone could be upset about the subject matter of your writing; it just doesn't make sense, it's not their choice. If they don't like it, they don't have to read it.
I do have to say though, I don't understand why you post so much poetry so often. Maybe I'm wrong, but it hardly seems like you spend much time with one piece of work. I never wanted to say anything about that because I have no idea how much time you spend writing each poem, I also don't know if your views on what writing should be are different than mine. I just get the feeling that once you write the last line of the last stanza, you immediately move on to the next poem.
Then again I'm the last person who should be criticizing anyone seeing as I don't write nearly often enough.

HURTFUL... MESSAGES?

LEMME AT 'EM! LEMME AT 'EM! LEMME AT 'EM! 

People don't like cheese--they love your poetry because it speaks to their souls--and they are afraid--afraid of that power. Don't let 'em scuff your shoes or bend your ears about it. 

I always feel better after reading your work--it's almost as if you're super psychic or super emphatic, since almost every sentence applies to my thoughts, sentiments, or situation. XD Or it's just so chalk full of---what do you even call it? Beauty? Essence? There's this touch about it--a tangy taste, something you cannot let go of, or forget---not in terms of the mind--it goes way, way deeper.

I like morbid things. I don't fear death himself, but that I will endure a painful demise, or that there will be nothing afterwards.
