    Description:
       i haven't been here in a good few months...hence i have seemingly picked up some dead sheep :P....I suppose i like narrative pieces...something that tells a story, a stroy that allows you into a different state of mind or at least view what another state of mind is like no matter how pretentious the situation of it (a depressed dead poet is i guess quite clichéd) ahh well let me know your thoughts...this is one of my own personal favourites of my own...so at least i hope some of you out there enjoy it.

    A man slumped over a wooden desk
    Shadowed from the shining sun
    Spilled ink reaching out like tentacles,
    Into the darker recesses of the room

    Pen still in hand, as it was in life
    Writing the final words
    Of a corpse’s final, unheard prayer,
    Unhappy words filled with despair

    Hear the dead man’s final plea
    Listen to understand his condition
    Of someone who lost the will to live
    Hear how he counted time…..

    One, two, three

    The seconds go past

    So slowly

    How long will it last


    Four, five, six

    Time will end surely

    In the Styx

    I grin cheerily


    Seven, eight, nine

    My story is done

    Forgive this rhyme

    Now that I am gone


    Ten


    Sad words fill the silence,
    That quiet place in your head
    Think over the emptiness inside
    The man who didn’t want life

    In his other hand he held
    The chalice of his demise
    A poisoned wine so sweet to his soul
    That he welcomed death with open arms
    Counting the seconds
    Until he couldn’t feel anymore.

      I love a good narative too bro. I try and branch out, challenge myself, but I always come back to it. This one is effective in my opinion. I see the scene, I feel the sorrow...if anything I want to know a little more about why he killed himself. If he were a loved one to me and I read that suicide note, I would be very frustrated, as it tells me nothing as to what he was feeling or why he did it. Then again, there are always these feelings when someone takes his own life.

    The opening stanza was very descriptive and well written. If I have a complaint it would be that a lot of the remainder of the piece is rather repetitive in content without really givng very much information thus lacks emotion to some extent. But overall it works in a kind of poe-esque kind of way.
