Death is knocking at my door

What is this, What is this--
A Barrier to me!?
Why, something so silly--
Don't you know
Living is a Tease, Life is pain
I am the Ease.
My message is one of release--
Don't you know...
Wherever I go,
You will follow


               Death is knocking at my door

                                           5/24/'13


(For all those who lost their lives in the tornado in Oklahoma
 City, I pray their end was quick.)

    Thanks again. It means a lot, coming from a person whose poem I have also critiqued. But don't be afraid to throw some criticism in there.

    Gabe, this one is special.... Any poet can recognize one that came from the heart. You had no choice. I believe this was one you had to right. Great Job, my friend.... Jake

    Hello Gabe, wow... i love this... you can't hide or run from the hooded door. pain will always grows, so will the numbers in question. I hate what happen in Oklahoma, sad it is... nothing we can do or say, can change such faith... the message is thick,, and so is death... xox~ Linda
