photogenic whispering clouds

The sky told me that
Your heart was broken into
So I took a pic

Death

Death do me part 
Eh, I wanna die 
Ah, but living
Trying...thriving...
Heals my heart - it weeps and it spills

Love

Love

A comet like happening
Aroused with desire
Lives an illusion
Justified by its end
The poetic verdict

My Friend Ben

I knew Ben.
He was my friend.
He was struck by lightning.   
That’s quite frightening.
I notified his next of kin.

Rest in Peace, Dear Friend

Flowers wilt
Dead carcasses are buried
Loved ones mourn

Rest in peace,
Your life on earth is no more…
Farewell, friend

Gone Away

Should that war have been fought?
I’m not the one to say
I only know:  The-Names-On-The-Wall
Are those who’ve gone away.

What happens to us when we die


Death body and soul are separated
Body decays
Soul meets Eternal God
Waits to reunite with its risen body, last day

Grew

A tree, a branch, a crash.
A spark, a flame then ash.
of break began anew.
of ash a life then grew.
another tree with branch...
...or two.

second attempt at a haiku

The rose just wilted
As my tears fell upon it
Her casket is shut

This is a hard one for me to figure out but a change is good.

I Wish It Could Have Been Me Dying

My heart whisked away after your death.
My soul couldn’t handle the disaster.
You were so gracefully perfect.
The way you walked.
Your sweet voice.
I miss
you.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Dan Keir| Details | |

Machair

Where salt air, sand and soil meet;
                    A breeze of seasons sung a day.

Life grows to pass beneath your feet;
                    Still under grass we sleep to stay.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Alyssa Bolewski| Details | |

Remember

Do you remember, before you left, how everything was?
I miss you and just want to take a deep breath and pause.
I miss the way we always thought we were cool.
But I know I'll be with you soon.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Frankie Franco| Details | |

I miss you my love

I miss you so much
I tried to move on, but have failed
I imagine often that your hand I clutch
I miss your lovey smile
The way you were so passionate
I would follow you for miles
On end until I found you

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Vicki Acquah| Details | |

Do Us Part

I said the vow
now
we are parted
you slept well
years passed
no one
knew
watching
labored
deep
snoring
I recoiled
from the frigid
side.
of the bed
pouting
praying
that love
would have
restored
your desires.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Carlisle Turner| Details | |

Lament

Sadness surrounds me
Like falling snow
Piling up all around
Deadening the sounds
That come with our world
Floating through the air
Out of control
Falling
Falling
An open field where
Snow erases individualism
Hiding the beauty 
Nothing stands out
Blank

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Andrea Rose| Details | |

Angel of Death

Angel of Death,
Cloaked in black.
With black scaled wings,
Upon her back.
Angel of Death,
Coming for me.
As soon as I sleep
Then dead I will be.
Taken by the night
It swallows and consumes me.
Now I am the angel
And death becomes me.

Oreo

Since the day you came home
You were my best friend.
My shoulder to cry on,
The fur beneath my tears and laughter.
My walking buddy,
Or should I say running buddy.
Though you are no longer with us,
You are still here,
In our hearts, forever year after year.

Timeless Limbs of Gold

Timeless Limbs of Gold
by Lori Maria Walton

Spinning
  ceaseless,
limbs of gold
  desire movement,
to become still

hours, set like days
  upon the laps 
of young children
  and old men

photographs blur
  my memory
with stains 
  of reality

where have you gone?

Short Death Of A Friend poem by K. Patrick Schaffer| Details | |

MONTGOMERY

Repetition is the father of learning,
an endless corridor of
narrow stairs;
anger blossoms self-discovery.
Tickling ivories and black keys,
tickles the soul into musical 
paramount--
retrograded toward amnesia,
feels no more;
striking chords on a harp
in an angelic paradise.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Don Davidson| Details | |

The Feeling

From deep within a silence grows
Vastly spreading, yet no one knows
No one knows of what's to come
The Feeling is sudden, then it's done.
Often with pain, fits of sorrow
The Feeling leaves nothing, not even a morrow
With much haste, take one last breath
We all succumb to The Feeling of Death.

kaise maan le tujhe mra hua mere yaar
jab tu hi nhi to , main bhi nhi

The Ghost I Knew

Can I catch you
Can you stay?
Forests at wood
There we play
A gentle hand 
That fixed the dress
Brushing tears back
Saving stress
I can not bare
The oaken wave
Only memories
Can I save
I miss your hair
And what it covered
More than a mind
God knows I loved her
The ghost I knew
She rests away
I can not catch you
You can not stay.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Kurt Everdeen| Details | |

The Knowing

see. nothing. 
see. you dont care. 
see. everythings broken. 
see. my blood spilling everywhere. 
Hear. my heart break. 
Hear. The shot gun hit the floor. 
Hear. The silence in the air. 
Feel. The tear falling down my cheek. 
Feel. The knife in your back. 
Feel. My hand pull away from yours. 
Feel. How broken you are. 
Know. that i give up.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Kyam Nalwanga| Details | |

Tis our fate

Some call it a hole
I call it a hollow
For without you here
There is only a memory
But even if you are gone
I believe you are home
I wait for that day
That day we’ll all reach the gates
For tis all of our fate
To face the angel of death
For you, for all I pray
That the Lord will let us stay
For He alone can say
You have truly earned your stay.

No Ode for a Dead One

To all those who lost loved ones
I should have listened
Should have warned you
I wish you back but you don't come
I wish you had listened
Perhaps you did, perhaps you do
Oh how then?
But they thought you
Thought you were matrixical
Invincible
Oh yes
Why is it?
Now
Reality sets in
So morbidly
Flowers in the hole
Are buried
On top of that box
That box.

When Death Comes About

When a death comes about,
All I do is shout
But when I look about
I see a dog’s pout

I thing about it
All it lead to is getting lit
And if I think a bit
All that comes from it

Is me looking at the Lord
Thinking,
Why pout and shout,
When I could look
And I think about?

If I just smile for a while,
I feel like I can build the Nile

A Goodbye from All of Us

From that day to the next week, snow, rain and sleet -no sun.
Everything surrounding us is black,
Precious presents become precious past
Blurred cloudy water filling our vision
All together we grip, holding tight to memories taken,
Memories that have become dreams at night and haunt are days.
Were you ever here, my friend?
We whisper what could have been.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Jacob Bellville| Details | |

Guilt Gone Prologue

A man I knew once,
A man I knew as friend.

Within his indenture he turned on us,
Fed up, we no longer could contend.

A man who asked so much from us,
Our support, so little we lend.

We weren’t there when he called on us,
We weren’t there to help him mend.

Left with guilt as vile as puss,
For we were negligent and dilatory in his sickened end.

Fingerprints

I have made these fingerprints just for you;
So when I'm grown and gone,
You'll have my fingerprints of your own.

Please cherish my fingerprints,
Love them like you love me.
When you have my fingerprints together we'll be.

When I'm gone and out of this sinful world;
You can pull my fingerprints out,
And say I will always love you without a doubt.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Dennis Broe-Ward| Details | |

WHY

The Asian Tiger walks deaths bed, a tenuous thread, 
Shaming us standing ones with maggots in our heads.
The African Rhino and Elephant walk their likewise fate, 
Valued by us as horny dust, adornments for human plates.
It will always forever amaze me, when too late we always say, 
What we regret most in this life... is the treasure we abused on the way.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Cole Banner| Details | |

Echoes from the Other Side

In my dreams you sang to me,
while hidden in the mist...
As I knelt upon your grave,
with flowers in my fist.
I felt your spirit close to mine,
like memories that I keep...
Is it easier to sing to me
while I am fast asleep?
How tangible these dreams of mine,
yet also quite surreal...
Do these echoes from the other side
have something to reveal?

For Lost I Am In My Dreams Of Terror

For lost I am in my dreams of terror
- ring the bells of ghastly churches made
of iron! And flee the nightly tremor
from memories of children at play.
These sweep the mind in most pleasing ways,
like specks of tulips on gentle winds borne,
Futility, my dear, hides the Sun’s rays
and closes the door to memories adored
and I weep in my dreams for happiness no more.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Don Schaeffer| Details | |

Last Days before the Big Surprise


It's very bright
and green here
behind my eyes,
the color of Spring.
I'm used to that
and I live where I loved.

I don't know you.
I've forgotten all
but traces. New dreams
are eating the memories.

Perhaps I lay 
under the pumping sun.
Perhaps I find
old strands of unused
language. Perhaps the
shadow of something
from time and place
surprises me. It's all
new and present.

When Death Is Imminent

If I were to die
tomorrow,
Would you be filled
with sorrow?

If you were told I
will soon die,
Will you, for me
especially, cry?

If I were found
dead,
Would you be filled
with dread?

If you were to
witness me dying,
Will you realize,
all this time, I've
been lying?

If I were to find
relief upon death,
Would you feel grief
as I breathed my
last breath?

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Christian Guild| Details | |

Death

Death had come.
Death had killed.
Death had left.
Death had taken my friend.

The only one I trust.
Leaving me here alone, 
Depressed.

Death had come.
Death had killed.
Death had left.
Death had taken my family.
 
The fire burned our home.
Turning them into dust.
Burning loneliness into my heart.
Quieted.

Death had come.
Death had killed.
Death had left.
Death had taken my life.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Christian Guild| Details | |

Welcome To Living Death

There comes a point in time
Where nothing matters
Where your vision is blurred
Where there's nothing but darkness encircling you 
Where love has lost and Fear has won. 

There comes a situation when you realize your hopeless,
lifeless, faithless, graceless, breathless, and  mindless 
mind has taken over and won. 

Where happiness is feared and sadness is embraced. 
 
Welcome to living death. 

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Cole Banner| Details | |

The Road it Forks

In the breaking light of dawn,
in a photograph - we kiss.
It's to your inner light I'm drawn,
while cursing fate, and chances missed...
Wrapped in thought, and solitude, 
sweet lies trumped by bitter truth.
The road it forks,and one way taken,
now questions over dreams foresaken...
A puzzling gauntlet of how, when and why?
You were my favorite hello,
and my hardest goodbye...

Grief

I walked a lonesome street
one dawn morning,
the sun was also rising,
and I could hear the baby birds chirping away.
I walked past a cemetery
guarded by black, iron bars,
I heard death's growl.
I turned and there he was; Death grinning at me.
I saw an old man sitting next to a tombstone,
he was crying.

I wonder who he had lost?
Such a sad sight to see such grief,
but that is the surprise of life.

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Joseph Sergi| Details | |

Hey Johnny

Hey Johnny can you hear me way up high,
I still have a tear in my eye.
Remembering things and what used to be,
talking about music ,watching Jeopardy.
The Flyers are playing there's a game tonight,
I hope you can see it through that light.
Your Mom and sisters miss you,
and hey Johnny I do too.

Never Far Away

It feels like there gone forever
Never to return, never to be seen again
But there's a crazy twist to this
They are never far away
You see a picture and 
You kneel and weep
You think they were never 
Yours to keep
But there's a crazy twist to this
They are never far away
They are looking down on you
With God saying "They are mine
and mine to keep"
But there's a crazy twist to this 
They are never far away

DEATH NOTE

Black memories
made it blind
White images 
are hard to find,
Pain... Emotions...
Hope... are Missing
My Mind, My Heart
are still not working

This is not a sin
for me, for now
but a solution
to make all things down

I wrote this dark letter
with a teardrops in each CORNER...
with a confuse body
that will  turn to SPIRIT later...
 . . .
I think this is the end...
. . .

Silence... ALL BECOME CLEAR...

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Richard Palmer| Details | |

When I Die 2

Look at I,I Richard Palmer seriously didn't cry,,,
When the ALMIGHTY called,'Poetic Palmer,Poetic Palmer,tell
this physical world bye bye,,,
Don't worry guys,wipe those tears from your eyes,,,
Feel,feel my presence,my spirit didn't blow away like a cloud
in the sky,,,
I am holding the ALMIGHTY hands,
I have become, a part of HIS plan,,,
Watching over and protecting my love ones,,,
An ANGEL,was always my after life intention,,,

Dialogue of Souls


Best of friends, for countless years,
we had the best of times.
Now as my eyes are filled with tears,
your soul to Heaven climbs.
The path we take, not always clear,
I feel so lost without you here.
Your last words, prophetic now,
“I’ll be home soon”- you knew somehow.
You left me here, I’m so alone,
but I dreamed Heaven had a phone.
We talked all night, you fell asleep,
I held the line to hear you breathe…

Short Death Of A Friend poem by Maz Zie| Details | |

Goodbye


I know now, what it's like
To feel deep Love and deep Sorrow.
To know that, some things will remain Forever unsaid.
Perfect memories, Only in your mind
Shared with One that is no longer on this Earth.

The long walk, like a flash-bulb image in my mind,
To a wooden bed with a ghastly occupant.
My hands shook as I placed a gift on your chest.

I felt there was nothing more could give you,
You took so much, already.
Goodbye.
