Whither Away By Jasen Sousa

Whither Away

Frozen in time while I impose the rhyme,
I’ve chosen to dine with the dead,
finally closing my mind.
Leaves blow blustery around my body’s frame,
please trust in my name,
rust covers the man who was slain.

The night sky is gloomy,
no longer does it consume me,
wondering when I might die?
The inalienable right to say goodbye as
I let out a light cry.
I pray the God’s protect me
and inject me with afterlife,
for me there is no other destiny,
look how little there is left of me!

Nothing left but bones,
nothing left that I own,
stillness, silence, moans,
sleeping on a tombstone
being eaten away by crows,
skeleton covered by clothes,
in each hand, a pen and a rose.

Times are tragic, a man made of magic,
mental perception of a picture
that couldn’t be more graphic.
Snakes and worms cover my corpse,
they slither where I lay,
overhead the sky is bitter and gray,
death is delivered on this day,
I begin to whither away.
