Love, Life, and Death. This is it.

Lay me down where I die.

Show the world,

The fiddler's eye.

Little lion man,

The world is terrible,

Please dont cry.



The ocean waves,

Pull in and out. 

One long,

Continuous shout.


Expire our souls,

To the midnight blue,

Where land and the sky,

Blur together in one hue.



Life is but a dream.

A dream we dream by the bay. 

A hope for tommorow,

And love of today.



Long Live Life!

Joy and Love,

Do suffice!

Long Live Death!

The sleeping monster,

In our dreams. 


But little lion man,

It made the dream, so much sweeter.

What a spectacular poem , how you put all those rhyming words together based on the theory of a lion is wonderful written poetry ,
Infact this is the kind of poetry I try to achieve but after 2/3 stances I tend to give up , you obviously have a great talent for poetry , I like what your saying in this poem - where land and sky blend together in one hue , the stances you use in your poems are realy mind blowing and such a pleasure to read as I'm very keen on the themes you write about !!!
All the best : ina .

Wow this is such a beautiful poem! I admit, I'm not usually one for poetry, I'm a story writer through-and-through, but it's poems like this that make me wish I could write them!
My favourite aspect of your poem was the beautiful words you used, like 'little lion man', 'fiddler's eye', 'hue', and the idea of death as 'the sleeping monster' was a nice touch.
Your use of rhyme was flawless. Seriously, cannot fault this poem, well done! :)
I'd appreciate it if you'd check out my short story, 'Realisations' and tell me what you think and any way I can improve!
