Close to death...

I feel liberated,

ready to live life again.

No one should cry over me

for the outburst of tears might

purge all my ills, drown all my hopes

kill all my dreams...

Here I look up at the mass of signs

and stars in the sky

and lay myself open for the first time

to the benign indifference of the world.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Death is just the sweet parting kiss of the body and the soul. If rebirth be true, they shall meet again in another setting, another world...

Extreme and gorgeous in it's defining truth.

I agree, life and death collapse in the same beuatiful aura.

I love it. This writing is beautiful.
