I heard a timer when I died -------------------------------------------
I heard a timer when I died
Everything slipped away
My dreams mixed with reality
Part of me longs to stay
Sunlight crept slowly to the bed
But to warm me itís too late
The sun can not save me from death
I have chosen my own fate
As darkness closes in Iím alone
No family or a friendÖ
Then somewhere I hear a timer ringing
Bringing my time to an end
Silverstein? Where the sidewalk ends is a fav, Seuis (SP?) is another fav. The cat in the hat is a really creepy book, try reading it like fifteen times in a row, outload. You'll get chill's. Head to toe chills. Watch the Grench backwords, sinc up Pour some Sugar on Me, it brings out the devil. We tried it last Christmas, grusome, just gruesome. They made a movie about it: Gigli.
hey!guess what i know who it is...it seems no one else does...it is...oh [censored]...what is her name! dam it...i forgot!... dickonson... right... what is her first name!?...oh well...anyways, this was really good. i like how you related the timer to your death. very creative. this is a whole lot better than mine...well, great work...again.!LOL
Well, I have no clue which famous poet this was based off of, since i honestly don't know about many famous poets. but I do know that this poem is really good. My favorite was the third line in the first stanza. This poem is original and each line drags you to the next. I liked it a lot. good job
Wow! I have always wondered what it may feel like when someone is near death. I feel that you answered my thought. Maybe because I am not afraid of death, I wasn't chilled by the poem. But I felt calm, peaceful. Maybe it was because the person was in the bed, and I feel that dying in bed is a nice way to go. I don't know. I just know that this is an awesome poem. And I will add it to my favorites.
