Throwback Thursday Poetry: Esthetics of Death

within a split second
a lifetime shall pass
all that has ever been
will return to you again
all that you remember
all you have seen
will flash before your eyes
as if on a TV screen
you feel quick and short pain
it’s a shock to your brain
you breathe your last breath
as you’re swept away by death
all questions are answered
all knowledge foreseen
and forever you stay
in a most wonderful dream

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
