Last Breath

I wander in white forests,
Seeking what I cannot find.
Meaningless souls all about,
In what I can't define.

I hunger for answers,
I seek the unknown.
what purpose shall I meet?
When death is all I know.

They say I am weak,
The shadows say I am wrong.
I know You hear me now,
Can You feel this dark song?

Bring me to the evergreen meadows,
Where light and darkness meet.
Tell me it's not all for nothing,
Where the frozen is turned to heat.

Forsaken is my destiny,
In the cosmos lies my truths.
Will I lose all consciousness?
Will I forever lose my youth?


I pray my dreams will leave me here,
In this cold winter haven.
I open my eyes to fading black,
And see the ever-staring raven.

In this great mysterious world,
I am dancing with stars of death.
Driving myself into madness,
And holding my Last Breath.

  • Life is a huge void full of darkness sometimes. Hard to navigate through and to discern a purpose or a reason. I think your poem trys to say what you're feeling. There are low points in life but sometimes we may reach a dark place that is the verge of death. Always know that you can pray to God and he will hear you. His mere presence can guide you back to light and when you feel it you will breathe again. Never lose hope of finding something bright or finding your true purpose. Guess I'm saying..keep faith. Nice poem!
    • Thanks, this is just mostly about the possibility of there being nothing after death...I know that Christian belief says otherwise, but there's a strong possibility that there really isn't anything after death. This poem also expresses my feelings towards the cosmo's and how random and chaotic the universe is to life. I guess I'm trying to make sense of my existence, and come to terms with the void that death is itself. I also am a huge fan of Edgar Allen Poe. I wanted to write something dark like he did. :)
