The Quintessence Of Death
E Rocco Caldwell



What is its taste?
Ashes
Acid
Bitter milk
A tad bit of arsenic's lace

Has it a savor
Does it gain or lose flavor
By the end

There's never any pleasure
Just silent prayers
And tears
Dimming sunlight as the day ends
Afterwards there can be peace
In his difficulty to be released
The slow painful burn of candlelight
As its cancer closed in
Like darkness

Sometimes there's confusion and pain
If it comes sudden like a hurricane
Uprooting
Tearing apart
Changing the landscape
You can go quite insane

Some say it can be peaceful
Perhaps?
The closing of your eyes
To the graying sky
Letting your essence free
Scattered to the sea
Like dust
This I think I prefer
