poem about death

Poem: Godless

Tell me something death,
Are you happy with your job,
Aren’t you tired of the complaints?

I’ve seen you take away everything from me,
One by one,
But that’s your job,
I don’t blame you,

Tell me, something gods,
Aren’t you tired of stopping me from filling my void?
Am I threatening you?
Is my existence something that bothers you?

To the gods that can’t hold themselves back from my realm,
Beware, beware of the stare that is following you,
The life that is a threat to you,

Beware of the godless god,
The shallow husk of a being,
That still lets the colors roam free,
But cannot see,

In this modern world,
I can feel the blood boiling inside of me,
My ancestry is behind me,

I died once, and will die once more,
And when I die heaven and earth will hear a roar,
While the underworld will personally see,
The wrath of a mortal,
The death of gods destiny.

 

 

Poem: Beloved Brother

As the light faded from the sky,
In the wind there was a cry,
People standing around you,
There was nothing I could do,

Through the silver streams of my golden dreams,
I could not see, I could not tell,
Where you good, or did you not feel so well?
You always hid it so well,

Under the snow I saw you glow,
You smiled, my fallen brother
And for me there won’t be another,
I don’t regret nor I forget that you took the road with me,

To this memories I will hold,
And with your blessing I will go,
To pass the line we once planned to cross,
And although the road I must walk alone,
I can not tell, if I will end it without you so well,

And where the road takes me,
I am not able to tell,
We walked all this way,
But on this day I will have to bid you farewell.

Many places I have seen,
Too many sorrows I have seen,
Many things I lived through,
But then I still had you.
