He wrote this with his Daughter, and asked me if Iíd record it for him after they lost touch. It was an honour to be trusted to sing it.



A truly beautiful work of art , and you sung it so well , Missy...

Thank you for that gift...

He heard it on the otherside...and loved it

He had a big personality and a gift for poetry.  While he clashed at times with some of DUP's members,  it was par for the course in general for this place-- we have our share of conflicts. It's also a wake up call to the DUP community in general;  keep those conflicts in check, because you don't know how they truly affect someone , being behind a keyboard as we all are, and there may not be opportunities to resolve with those we have disagreements with.

I know that not everyone always agreed with David or maybe didn't even like him, but I do know that at one point of being on the receiving end of a conflict here, it affected him to the point of causing physical distress which required hospitalization .

Regardless of what we all think of each other at times, we should not let our words, our feelings, a desire to take sides, or hold some power over others , bring a person to that point of needing an ambulance ride.

 Just because there are differences of opinions and personal dislikes of other members, does not give anyone the power to determine whether or not they are a member here.  That obviously doesn't apply to the fly-by-night plagiarists , trolls, catfishers and spammers that are just passing through here with the intent to harm-- we do have a right to rid ourselves of that bunch.

So in short, rest in peace, David, we'll keep your poetry here for you, and to the rest of us :  you only have one life on this Earth -- make it worth it, make it something good .

Thank you, Lav. While I can attest that all of that is truth, I just donít have the mental headspace to get into old wounds right now.

Letís please keep this thread about remembering the man. Right now, Iím just mourning my friend, as Iím sure others are too. x

Tears Of An Angel

I weep for peace that will never be
I weep for the hungry who do not have enough food to eat
I weep for the times of manís fate
His disavowal with machinery to rule with hate
I weep for the children lost in the warp of technology
I weep for the ones born in the cradle of a twisted biology
I weep for the preacher who preaches his lost theology

Peace I seek as an Angel who is
Adam and Eveís existence is the answer to lifeís quiz
Gratification as I seek
For the Angel of the lost as well as for the meek

Earthbound Angel singing so softly as I weep
Weary souls rest upon my bosom to spiritually keep
My tears raining from heaven as they kiss the towering trees
Gliding down the leaves
Divinity nourishment of the soulís blessing buried within my inner roots
To earth I come to bear such sweeten passionate fruits
Haven found in gentle arms as I come to you to please

In your dreams I passionately awaken you from a reverent sleep
So, shall you blissfully sow, so shall my halo come to reap
Take my hand, lay me among the stars, erase earthly chaos taken in vain
Cocoon my fragile wings in your arms as you softly kiss my lips and whisper to the wind my name
Blessed souls as we enter a beautiful astral plane
Far from the hatred, greed, the minds of the insane
Who relish their existence in the name of shame

Umm...mind to mind my earthly dream weaver
A moment in time for the realm of the cognizance awareness to grasp as a true believer
Embrace this soft Angel, a cosmic slip, centered dip
The lengthily thrusts of a heavenly shift
Transference of interstellar energy, bit by bit
Unity of its elixir began to gradually sift
The wondrous of an Angelís heavenly gift
A shooting star illuminating the sky, a meteorite shower for all to see
Wait, allow the moon to guide this harmony to the powers that be
The pearls of life drifting, you coming as Iím going
Angel wings flapping, you now have my halo glowing
A moment ordained in time
Kismet Karma only by fateís designs

You are an Angelís morsel delight
Wings are becoming weakened on earth, at the speed of light
Close your eyes, you can find the trail of my sultry rainbow in the cortex of the fifth dimension
A beautiful oneness of mind, body, and soul in twilight suspension
Spiritual Awareness of Mother, Father, Creator
An Angelís grain of salt, one must adopt from the naysayers or earthly haters

My strength is weaning as Iíve journeyed the world
Hidden secrets found in the soaring feathers of a Red Cardinal Bird
Mysteries of life decoded in lifeís written word
A discontent pen could be so much mightier than the sword
Healer properties of bodily in accord
An Angelís wings found in the hands to heal the world
Tears of an Angel as she silently weeps
I pray to the Lord your soul he will always keep

With wetted cheeks and a broken heart..

Life has a way of turning on a dime, sometimes, doesn't it??

This is such shocking news, I'm not really sure I have even processed it entirely. To say I'm saddened, doesn't even really begin to cover it. I didn't know David long but I knew enough of him to know that he was the type of someone who went out of his way to help a no one, veritable stranger, like myself. His kindness helped me understand my writing better and extended to motivation, advice on form and fucking killer attitude. He was nothing but extremely nice to me and I cherished our limited conversations. His impact was great (more than I realized) and left me with the notion to challenge myself, my outlook on my writing and my self confidence. I just mentioned him a few days ago, in praise of that challenge.
He was a massive presence and force to reckon with. My time on DU was improved exponentially by having had the good fortune of his brief friendship. I will always be deeply thankful and consider myself very very lucky that he was swept into my life.

All my heartfelt sympathies and condolences go out to those he held dear.

Safe travels, David....
Thank you, for everything
🌹

I was just looking him up the other night. Does anyone know how he died? He blocked me but I wished him good luck when he said he was leaving. I know he was very unhappy with this site and many of the writers here. So sorry to hear he's gone.

Hello Relic. He died of a long standing heart condition, it was all rather sudden. Peace out.

I just saw the beginning of the thread. So sad. It's a terrible way for DUP to start of the new year.

R.I.P David.

For David.


I will plant daffodils if you want.


I will plant these daffodils at your grave.
And when they've grown
and blossomed with life;
when sunlight from a penny-colored sun
feeds them
I'll see them exist,
cheerful in smiles and stiff yellow collars.

But I shall feel no delight
or contentment
nor will I won't float away
like a hummingbird or bee.

I'll plod away instead-
with no expectations of messages
from the dead,
while holding a perpetual resentment
at God
for keeping resurrection to himself.


You were a good man, David.
