Death poem

Death poem

 

Two days prior to expectation

I bleed into the earth

Red stain

deaths the bitterness

of being beaten;

the protection of 'them' from 'him'

(whatever and whoever that means);

the desperate 

grabbing?

grappling?

for the thread

I fear lost

that binds me 

to this body

this earth.

Just write instead 

just write

Beautiful. Love "deaths the bitterness". Great idea to use death as a verb. Love it when people play with language and this really works.
