I Hate You All

Yes you, and you, and you over there The nerve you all have, it’s sickening What right do you have to leave this world? Why do you all die on me? What is life that you toss it away? Old and sick, humppph excuses I say I have had enough No one must leave Stop, I command time to STOP Are my tears not enough? You all conspire against me, I know To add me to your collection Of death Why? Why? Why? All your kind smiles, laughter and love You make the world shine, and give hope Only to disappear to the afterlife Is this not cruelty? I beg of you all, do not go I have not the strength to carry on Here, as you all dwindle away Leaving me to ponder my own mortality Alone, alone I sit, knowing romance will be kindled once more Death will come to offer me a final kiss Whom will hate me?

I have lived much of that. Felt the same sadness and anger at death. Death tried to kiss me TOO but like a virgin I resisted its embrace. Now it must wait for another sanctioned visit... as I store more ammo to fight with..

Hello Arthur, I guess many people feel betrayed when those they love pass away. Indeed, it's hard to move forward after experiencing such a loss, but we do find a way somehow. It's not easy, so hang in there, Arthur. Your poem is powerful and other writers will relate to it as well. Best wishes, Carolyn

Great poem, I know just how you feel. So many of the people that I knew have left already. Everyday that I wake up - my life starts over again. I promise In won't leave yet.... Lucilla

Welcome back dearest of friends, where have you been, i've missed you being on the soup, i'm glad you enjoyed my EDMUND. Your write about death did not disappoint me either, but it's a sadness to it's lines, i look at death a different way though, it's the kisses promise to begin another jouney beyond, i've almost died a few times, and so i really don't fear death, but i'm at peace with the next step ahead but that is me. cheri
