TITLE: Death ( At The Door)

Death knocked once at the door
And was ignored.
Death rapped twice, as a premature icicle,
And all pretended he wasn't in store.

Death encircled both sides,
And a wall kept him in stall.
Atempted to leap over the ledge,
But the wall was sealed shut.
Though was prone to spot
A crack underneath the door.

And death crept in...

Once in , he dared to stalk another
somebody.
While two friends were talking and
fellowshipping.
Though keeping their composure.
Being amply aware of death's dim exposure.

One friend - ill chosen,
Displaying in his own way
His final farewell,
While one friend to face life's pains
alive.
In knowing you are the pilgrim,
And your friend has found his way home.

May I submit honestly?
I'm glad it was not me.

One thing struck - about dissappearing
friends.
Deal lovingly and wisely towards them,
You may never know their journey's end.
When a dispute surfaces, around the bend
Be the first to make amends!

Your title was good, and I wanted to see where you were going to go with it. Actually this said alot but then ended up saying nothing to the reader. Maybe this was very personal and only meant to be understood by the writer.

I agree with the above comment. This appears to have some very deep meaning, but maybe not understood by most readers.

The writing conveys a lot of emotion. I want to know more of this story. Where are these emotions coming from?

Keep writing -- you seem to have a lot to share.
