Hang Man

Outside he appeared to be jolly

Inside he was feeling hollow, empty

He could feel something creeping in his mind

It was dark, cruel, tempting, and unkind

He tried to ward it off, tried to fight it

But on days when he was awake and alone, he contemplated on it

Don’t think him too weak, it was a battle no one could see

It took over him so his life he took a finality

He bowed his head and there himself he hanged

The darkness he could no longer withstand

I Dreamed I Died

And my soul left my body

I felt light

I was not scared

I saw the ocean as I went out the little house

A ray of light beaming down another place

And other souls I could see

I was happy, smiling and was ready

Incomparable bliss!

 

I walked within the clouds

And I was greeted by a bright light

A voice came

It asked, What have you done with your life?

Are you ready to enter heaven?

An answer I didn’t have

I tried to recall the last thing I did before dying

Then I was sent back to Earth

Perhaps I need to do more to be worthy

Or I still have something else to do before my time

Whatever Happened?

Whatever happened to the person full of laughs?

The one full of warmth?

The one I shared things and secrets

Where is he now?

Why did you go?

Why take off somewhere we can’t reach you?

I could have told you to stay

That it was a bad decision

I wish you took a chance

Instead of leaving us forever

 

*in memory of the guy who jumped off the building i work at. I didn’t know him but feel sorry he did what he did

The In Between

I fell into the void

Darkness is all I see

No other soul could be found

Or heard

I walked or floated

I could never tell

For there were no roads

 

My voice echoed on to forever

As the voices of my past

Of my life

Faded slowly

Until I was here and there

And in between

The Ghosts Were….

The ghosts came running….running away

Half a mile they crossed only to be led to their doom

 

Wandering spirits were they

lost in oblivion

Nothing more but a memory

and only to be forgotten

 

What many do not know, is that ghosts are afraid

Afraid to be lost, to be forgotten, to be shunned,

to be thrown to the fiery depths

 

Ghosts! Many are they

Many were they

 

Now they are but a haze

and nothing more

Die and Live Again

I died today and my soul flew

to the barren desert, to the midnight sun

to the winter rain and the cold dark ocean

 

I crept into the crypt — to the abyss of no return

or so they say

So I took the liberty of all things whimsical

until at last I felt at ease

 

I died today and tomorrow, I shall live once more

hOw I DiEd

I can’t remember how it happened but I know it did

they said I dreamt it but I know better

people often think you’re crazy when you’re a kid

so I decided to write it as a letter

I remember falling down and breaking the floor with my head

then it felt I was flying and I couldn’t hold on to my bed

I phased through walls, went straight to the roof

I was tumbling as I went, I felt like a goof

I heard my dad, my name he was calling

and I saw my mom who was crying

My brothers were wailing and turning purple and blue

I myself was feeling kind of sad and lonely too

 

then, in an instant I was back to my body

I felt great and so very happy!

my family was joyous that I had awakened

then I told my family about what happened

but they just chuckled and said I merely fainted

they said from my bike I fell and scraped my knee

and when I saw blood dripping, fear came over me

they said I fainted and my tale is exaggerated

but I know the truth and what really happened

 

Believe me when I say that’s how I died

Every word is true not a single lie

I just got lucky, I came back to life
