Death Party

Death Party

I watched my death party
And smiled
Because I knew what nobody can expect
When they leave into the darkness
Between the layers of time itself.

Some people shed tears of lost
While others smiled with no cost,
Many cry on their own
While I felt death
Like a wound
From a black rose.

I await to greet others
Within seconds
Not years –
Like time spent growing up with my mother.

Because relativity is real
Just like you and me
Drinking to death
Without one another.

We all know each other anyway
We planned it before we came
A journey that delivers every type of pain.

I will await your death
At the place
That looks down
As Earth rotates.


◄ A New World Awaits

I like the perspective of looking from the outside in gathering pace with the inevitable.

While I felt death
Like a wound
From a black rose.
