My Friend Ben

I knew Ben.

He was my friend.

He was struck by lightning.   

Thats quite frightening.

I notified his next of kin.

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 couldnt 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 Madison Marie| Details |

I Hate This Feeling

I hate this feeling I'm having
Like someone cared about me
But it was an act
Like I'm present in life
But I'm not
Like my best friend is okay
But she isn't.
Like I'm okay
But I'm not.


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.


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.

vajud

 VAJUD
mera vajud tujh se hai mere yaar
jab tu hi nhi , to main bhi nhi
tu hi mera sabkuchh hai mere yaar

kaise bhul jaye hum, aap ko mere yaar
tu hi meri sase , tu hi meri dhadkan
kaise maan le tujhe mra hua mere yaar
jab tu hi nhi to , main bhi nhi
mera wajud tujh se hai mere yaar


Short Death Of A Friend poem by John Paluszek| Details |

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 well 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.


Short Death Of A Friend poem by Uwe Stroh| Details |

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.


Short Death Of A Friend poem by Brian Cristoni| Details |

When Death Comes About

When a death comes about,

All I do is shout

But when I look about

I see a dogs 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


Short Death Of A Friend poem by Macaiah Gross| Details |

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 Ashley Perhealth| Details |

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 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 werent there when he called on us,
We werent there to help him mend.

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

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 Suns 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.


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 writ 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,
Ill be home soon- you knew somehow.
You left me here, Im so alone,
but I dreamed Heaven had a phone.
We talked all night, you fell asleep,
I held the line to hear you breathe

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.


Short Death Of A Friend poem by Gary Kraidman| Details |

What Now

There's really no one left to call

Do I need a phone at all?

The kids around are all on text

For me who to call next?

As time went by

I watched friends die

Left stunned and filled with rage

Who ever thought that we would age?

So now they're carried off the stage

Can't do much but turn the page

Today my call lists really blank

I say to you

And let's be frank

When all around have passed away

Life is but an empty day.












Short Death Of A Friend poem by Robert Andrew Lyle| Details |

Absent Friends

A bunch of flowers marks

The final resting place

Of earthly endeavours exit

From the human race

To freely fly from body

Unto another plane

To never struggle for a breath

Nor run for cover in the rain

So it is with my dear companions

Departed from me here

Enjoying their spiritual youth

While I remain to shed a tear

They are gone but not forgotten

As they share my mind each day

Many happy recollections

Makes my sadness go away


Short Death Of A Friend poem by Keith Merritt| Details |

LIFTING THE FOG

Late one summer's eve, humid and hot,
I was driving along at a horse's trot;
Fog rolled in, blurring the road, 
Traffic stopped and the heavy load
I had chained behind my tow truck
Nestled on my shoulders, I was stuck,
Going nowhere when an angel of God
Turned into the lane I trod.
Halo in the headlights, luminous wings
Enfolded me just as I braking
Flew through window glass and chrome,
Onward, upward to land on loam,
Going...going...going home.


Short Death Of A Friend poem by Lidija Vresk| Details |

Weep and a Moan

Watching the sequence of sound coming out of your mouth...
But the screaming is too loud.
I can speak,
But my brain doesn't want to.

I closed the door.
Silence called for me.
Should I cry or should I run after her?

What have I done to you?
but love you uncontrollably.

Shes then left speechless.
It looks like shes out of breath,
but really I broke her.

She was fragile.
So innocent.

Run, Just run.
A gun raised..
up to her mouth.
And a taint on her heart.


Short Death Of A Friend poem by Morgan Jay| Details |

Too little, too late

I know it's too little. 

I know I'm too late...

I guess I expected time to stop...

For time to just wait...



It's over...

You needed me and where was I...?

When you lay dying in bed.?

Too caught up in my head...



These flowers on your grave mean nothing...

The tears I cry are pointless...

It's too little...

Too late... 



I should have been there til the end.

Shoulda, woulda, coulda...



It doesn't mean anything now...

Too little.

Too late.

A Loan From Above

A loan from above
by Lawrence M. Nunez

Dear Lord I loved her so
and it hurt to see her go
it pains my heart
to be ripped apart
words cannot express
this deep distress
somehow I know
I have got to let go
for she was just a loan
from the angels you own

the pain is so deep
it is difficult to sleep
they say it will be okay
healing is on its way
but only you can heal
the topsy  turvy I feel
I know deep inside
with you she now reside
for she was just a loan
from the angels you own
