why should you die

 

so much goodbye
so much cry
a little twinge
of the lips
i utter a sigh

leaving is
always a
separation so
painful and
all tears go

eyes meant to cry
lips meant to sigh
words of goodbye
sad songs are dry
why should you die

    Very good! I like the last line. In a way it talks back to the rest of the lines that precede it.

    Chester has been a follower of my published and unpublished poetry work for sometime on my poetry site with WordPress: http://spiritfilledpoetry.wordpress.com
    There is a saying that goes something like this, “Never compare yourself to others, for you will always find those greater and lesser than you.” After reading much of Chester’s work I came to the conclusion, I thought I was a Poet until I read his work.

      I really like this ‘spirited’ comment!

      And, I also love the way in which being a regular human being in the presence of certain people’s art can be such a humbling experience 🙂
