Come, Sweet Death

by Aureus Argentum   Feb 15, 2011

Come, sweet death,
into the arms of my embrace.
Embrace, sweet dream,
all myself inside yourself.
Dream sweetly, death,
of my return into your arms,
embracing tenderly,
dream always sweetly now.

Come, shadows, forth,
into the light and be dispersed,
think always vaguely yourself
as a deathly form.
Breathe gently now,
inhale the scent of death,
disperse yourself into a form
of the unknown.

Come softly, love,
think not of death nor shadows,
but light less vague
than dreams that embrace you.
Descend beyond, sweet love,
return, encompass me,
for all myself inside yourself,
dream always until death.

    This is magical, Brianna. I remember the first time you showed me, I went like ahh, what did she do with the words?. It is like they dance to a rhythm only you know. Little genius:)

    5/5 Ingrid

    I've read this several times now, and each time, I grasp a little more of its meaning.

    It is a very deep and mysterious write, where love and death intermingle and consume each other in a dreamy, shadowy world, located somewhere in that fascinating mind of yours. :)

    I loved how the positivity evolved within this piece and the good part was when you ended it optimistically. :) You are good at effective line formation and meter.

    Flawless piece :)
