Death is the wind
sending a shiver
up your spine
billowing in the 'breeze
always there

Death is a cobra
searching for its
next victim
not caring who it takes
who it hurts

Death is a knife
slicing into you
hoping to take
your happiness
and the ones you

I love the poem, but there is one thing that always bothers me in poems that lack this: punctuation. If you had added punctuation to this poem, it could have easily been a five out of five stars.


Either way, I get the basic idea of the poem. Beautifully written.

heres the thing

Poetry is a hit or miss for me. I don't know how to critique them because I either like them or I don't it seems. Like, I'll read a poem and think "wow that's really boring" or "holy crap this is the coolest thing ever" and someone else will read it and feel differently.

When I read poetry out of a book, it's like going to an art museum. You look at a picture, sometimes you take a long time to admire it, sometimes you just walk away.

This particular poem m... (more »)

That's a very powerful poem! It's interesting to note that you were inspired by an actual event; pieces based off of real things ususally are the best. Your metaphors were direct and easy to follow, making this poem very easy and fun to read.

This is also true; death does not discriminate with its victims. I love the imagery here. You did an amazing job with this poem.
