    to greet oblivion
    like an old friend

    to die smiling
    my smile is dying

    to fail nobly
    or die trying

    death breathes life
    into my festering
    mouth ~ and I descend
    so fearlessly south, to
    where I was before
    my birth ~ a distant stain
    upon the earth, and in
    the earth I readily rot ~
    death is the life that
    breathing forgot, beneath
    the soil, beneath the sod
    the ground upon which
    I once so eagerly trod

    as a girl
    as a girl

    so very young, and
    in awe of this world


    deciphering the
    weathered ~
    sombre stones
    and dreaming of

    always
    being alone

    I will make it, believe me

    IDIOT - NOT NOT NOT.

    You WILL make it, believe me. Don't forget - you're expecting company next summer.

    love always always,

    Oh, and the poem was sad, as always, and indescribeably beautiful, as always. :)

    Lovely poem, Alison. Albeit very sad, but then that is how you feel.
