Image for the poem Thanatos


The black holes of my life exposed
A conscience of the past unknown.
These haunting words inflict deep wounds.
Expiring love in airless tombs.

The cross I bear against the grain.
This shadowland consumed by pain.
As midnight chimes a timeless clock.
The drumbeat of my heart is lost.

This journey ends with death one day.
In these four walls my mind decays.
The dance of death unites us all.
Extinguished flames in love and war.

Until what's left but brittle bones,
On mossy slabs of granite stone.
Inscriptions fade on shallow graves;
As angels weep forgotten names.

Author's Note
Thanatos is the Greek God of death.
I love the peace and tranquility of graveyards.
