Here, Now, Gone

July 16, 2010

Death is a curious thing,
a calm,
a silent knowledge,
a relaxing,
just knowing
you don’t have to go through the motions,
again,
ever

Death is
acknowledgment,
understanding,
acceptance,
the realization
that nothing can hurt you
anymore

I guess death could be
panic,
a choked scream,
wide-eyes and fearful,
knowing you can’t be saved

But I prefer to think that
death is
peace,
settling
drifting through a storm,
rest after a long day

Death is
staring into my eyes,
my soul

Death is here,
death is now,
death is saying it’s time.

I agree,
so I let go
