“A Question Of Death”

It is of death
seeping into our lives at birt,
creeping gently
as the night of life's revolving story.

Seemingly hiding out, 
yet in plain sight of all that is real
such genuine honesty
is to be achieved when your eyes close.

Does it come uninvited
or do some wish for it to lay a painful siege
in our dying hearts,
losing glimmer like the dull stars of midnight.

It tastes of bitterness
the ending of a sweet worldly life,
coming to an end
sometimes before it began in the garden of Eden.

Timothy Michael DiVito c2021
“In the depths of the midnight stars”
