This poem was written as a tribute to Lemmy, Natalie Cole, David Bowie, and many others who have left this earth, whether too soon or not.  May they all shine down on us from wherever they are now, be it up in the sky or deep in our hearts.  Death is inevitable, but memories always live on.


Blackstar fading into the evening sky
Leaving this world for the very last time
The sun is setting, red, violet, and gold
As you make your way to your new home

The earth below you now clouded in gray
The color grows darker as you move farther away
Leaving everyone you loved behind
I hope that wherever you are now will shine

All stars die someday
Some burn out quicker than others
The others hold on until their last moment
No matter what, the light always fades
Some will wait years to go, others a day
Nobody knows the reason why
But in the end, all stars die.
the water is rising
filling up the room
it's only a matter of time.

I can't take this silence
it's too deafening
I can't bear it any longer
make it stop.

these words inside my head
forming, metamorphosing
flowing up from the pit of my stomach
up through my chest and throat
and into my mouth
I can't stop them
if I keep them inside any longer
they will be the end of me
I have to let them go
for like me, they want to be free as well.

and I can feel it
any day now, any hour, any minute
I will become completely submerged
but I don't mind
for I accept my fate
with great dignity
after all, it was I who chose this
was it not?

you can tell me anything
set yourself free
while I'm slowly drowning
in my own unspoken words.

I'm sure I will.  Nice profile pic, by the way.  Is that a hooded merganser?

Yes it is, one of my favorite ducks beside the wood duck.

They are really beautiful.  Whenever I'm out birding on a reservoir or some other large, open waterway I often happen to see quite a few of them.  I love wood ducks, also.  I saw them for the first time at my local Audubon, when a mated couple happened to fly overhead.  The lighting wasn't that great, as it was cloudy, but I could still make out their shapes.  My favorite ducks at the moment, though, are the Ruddy Duck, American Black Duck, Northern Shoveler, and Bufflehead.  Oh, and the Common Merganser, of course.
