echoes of death flow

I heard the squelch of death again,
too much depth to pick up my pen-
heard voices not meant not be heard,
listened to your every last word;
I guess I’ll never know just when…

                    I

will let go of all that binds me,
death too sudden with empathy-
‘round the course I followed in fear
hoping delicate wings appear,
supporting me with sympathy…

                  and 

I shall wither through pain’s threshold,
hearing old tales of love lost told-
silhouettes of her echoes flow,
though a soft heart she did bestow;
remember her then wake up cold…

                   but

death’s pitied squelch, again I’ve heard-
eyes blurred with dependence preferred




I chose: "I heard the squelch of death again"

I thought this was beautifully done Luloo. A really clever and powerful poem. It finished in a little clutch of poems just outside the top ten, but just wanted to thank you for your unique and enjoyable take on my opening line.
