THE FLY

it is late and on a windowsill
like a spark of electricity
after seven short days of life
i hear the death of a fly
 
i weep more than for others i have lost, still
i never did understand the futility
of peoples lack of love for life
i suppose some people deserve to die

Thanks Ann. I know Renfield: played wonderfully by Lord Tom Waits in the Coppola version, completely insane, Dracula's pet...

...maybe you're right

What an interesting poem! Somehow it sounds as if it was written by Renfield, a character who makes a very brief appearance in the book Dracula. But he eats flies. But I think he might cry about them too!
