When death attacks

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

Have you ever seen up close a soul as death attacks?

Watching tense eyes swirl from HD color to black

A young pleading face as her stiff body goes slack

Have you ever seen up close a soul as death attacks?

                                    ..

The face loses pace in a race for the obscene

A day dreamer look pushes into the extreme

Rosy white cheeks turn into blue cool cream

Fallen down tears a sister asks what’s it mean?

                                    ..

Curious bystanders peer down on sacred ground

Finding it hard to make themselves turn around

Sneaking peek-a-boo’s on a trip without sound

Watching a soul escape the last breathe falls down

                                    ..

In a poised stare her dead air and sun comes undone

The heartbeat freezing, seizing all she’s become

Soon a family’s cold tears will turn her sun into rage

Yet still life always wins as death takes center stage

                                    ..                                 

Trees and their branches fall onto winters ground

After the snow there are no green leaves to be found

New trees arise along with new fresh spring rains

Rinsing out shades of pain on grey winter days
