I’ve never been a big fan of writing poetry that rhymes, but I thought I’d give it a go… plus all I have been posting is bloody shitty blog rants.

 

A Shallow Finale

With a blood curdling scream do I wake from my dream

 Trying not to embrace the darkness

 Clutching air to my chest do I lay back to rest

 All the while I ignored the rasping

 From the deepest recess I beat at my chest

 This mortal coil no longer mine for possessing

 Sad words while they’re spoken mirror lies as a token

 To make my soul sound so unique

 So pass by in procession and be done with this session

 My name you’ll forget in a week 

 So go to the wake have coffee and cake

 Tell jokes while you smile so banally

 Don’t be so grim like the reaper within

 We all get this shallow finale
