i want to die alone #poetry

i want to die alone
on a dark pebble shore
a thousand frantic seagulls
will sing my mass
(my gravediggers)
will exult
the gravity of nonexistent stars
will bury me
into the scents of salt and fruit
and when my fearless Spanish angel
takes me to the altar of the moon
i will forget the misery i’ve lived
and never be reborn

  1. Nothing is forgotten. Nothing can be forgotten. With the pain of reading, I stay on the farthest shore where the Moon is just an illusion. Lonely.

  2. Good morning. Another lovely write. I am certain that when your time finally comes, many more than just a thousand seagulls will be frantic. Also, enjoyed the lines of forgetting the misery you lived on the alter of the moon. It can imply so many things. Well done.
    As for me. I just hope I die of love.

    1. Good morning, Drew! Thank you for your kind words! Before you die of love, may your every day be filled with love!
      I am working from my iPhone.
      Did you post?

      1. Yes, I did post. Hope it doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable in any way.
        I hate blogging from the phone. I am a computer guy through and through.
        Thanks for your kind wishes. Hope the same for you.

      2. I saw the post. Thank you so much for the acknowledgement.
        You are so kind to me.
        I tried to comment from my iPhone but it did not work. Before I get to my computer I will say this: the longing for that somebody that we’ve never met marvelously captured in your words. Great poem Drew! All yours!

    1. Thank you so much Eric! Haha! That’s the kind of hell I am used to. Love reading you too. Oh, I love your 🎩

  3. I’m enthralled by the communion with nature that takes place after the death, with the animals singing the mass and digging the grave, then being buried in the scent of salt and fruit, even being taken to the alter of the moon. Trying to imagine the sights, sounds, and atmosphere as all this happens is kind of chilling. This would definitely be a lovely funeral.

    1. Thank you so much, David! You are right. I did try to capture the communion with nature after the death. A very meaningful communion at least for me. You read me so well. Thank you again 😊

  5. A touch of pain in d poem.love is a blessed gift given by God.but this love gives most pains; but i think that this pain is too a wonderful gift for a lovely heart.do you agree with me,dear friend.
