Consenting to Death

Death, don't lie to the rest of the world
Say it, 
Loud and clear
That you and I are good friends!

Say it,
That you are,
For me,
The taste of exquisite chocolate 
As it melts in the mouth,
You are,
The orgasmic climax lovers feel
When they get tangled in each other
On those nights when the moon is too shy
To even show a part of itself!
You are,
The moment creation happens in poets
And artists of all sorts!

Why, Death,
You are my soothe,
You are my relief,
The hand I long to hold,
The channel through which I shall go through
As free as a free spirit
As free as a liberated soul,
One so totally aware of the need to
Be as exactly as she wants
For life remains as elusive as is a reflection
On river waters!

I revere you,
I live for you
And I await for your coming
With music pounding in my heart
And with zeal painting itself all over my soul!

Though, I have one request for you,
Be gentle with me
I shall not fight you
I shall accompany you,
There shall be no need to be catastrophic with me
Be gentle
And lift me up to your realm
Being a good friend of yours,
I shall simply accompany you
With a smile on my face
And with curiosity in my heart
Exploring what lies beyond 
Has been on my mind
Since quite some time now!

I don't think that I've ever read or heard such a positive attitude toward death. Good for you! I'm going to take a page from this poem of yours, so to speak, and rearrange my own attitude. Very inspiring and educational for me! Thank you. Best wishes, Gershon
