DEATHMODE (typical constant thoughts of an old fart)

I wouldn't have the slightest problem

if ever asked 

'what is it that haunts you most?'


my answer

which I have carried on the tip of my tongue

ever since the naive youth in me

gave up his silly assumption

of being immortal

it is the draining of time

as if in liquid form

being poured away-

my vessel of existence emptying

unstoppably so


and by realising that this diminishing of my days

is gaining momentum

Not to many run and break down this door. In my life I have grabbed deaths door handle at least half a dozen times - My parachute didn't open correctly with 25 seconds to fix; been caught on a hook with fish-line rapped around a fallen tree, in zero visibility while scuba diving; almost drowning when I was about 6. Death scares me so much I can't help but to try and fully live.
