The Silence in a Dying Man's Farewell








Silence is seldom heard when spoken aside

-the stage of poetry.






Anuoluwa Soneye


And every day,

I lose a part

-of me

I Fall


I fall apart into

little bones,

then flesh-

Bloodless and silent

yet, I fall.


I fall apart into


in public places

beneath itching eyes

yet, I fall.


I fall apart into

things I cannot say.

Disgust- sight of decay

below- decomposed

and yet, I fall.



Death Cares


Tonight turns cold.

The snow steams

and the darkness shines.


Death lays my bed.

I sit at the last supper.

He helps carry my cross

to the hill.


Tonight turns cold.

I shiver helplessly

till death comes by alone

and wraps me in his arms

-in white.


Oh death comes for me!

Oh death cares for me!




Regrets are sores

torn through deep

past the hall of memories.


Regrets are colorless.

They spark no picture-

faceless agony


Regrets are tasteful.

On raw pepper,

excess sauce.


Regrets are gentle

and quiet-

in voiceless tears.


Regrets weigh tons

so when giants kneel,

it’s not weakness.

The crushing mass;

-of “if I had known”

What are you like?


Some say you are old

ugly- withered skin

and red eyed.


Some say you have a scythe

Sharp- dangerous

a single swipe.


Some say you are beyond

human- far below; too above

our thoughts.
