In my previous Poetry Friday post, I mentioned my general fascination with life and death. There are people who are in constant search for the Fountain of Youth. I, on the other hand, welcome death with open arms. We fear it so much, and yet it is an inevitable part of existence. Knowing that death is just there, allows us to live and to savor.
I wrote this poem years back. I keep thinking of death and dying. My morbid fascinations, I realize, found outlet in my poetry. Thanks to Check It Out for hosting today’s Poetry Friday.
