DEATH -the liberating event !

By Tina Rimbaldo

Looking myself  in  the mirror

Reflections of death  stare back at my face.

Someday this body shall be absent of my soul ,

Feeling the cold marble on feet and toe .

Will Miss Death  come as a foe ?

Will  on my card say : „Jane Doe?“


Oh, my poor body ,shall you twist in mortal pain ?

Is my life lived in vain ?

Shall my bones be broken or whole?


Will my back be stabbed from betrayal one last time ?

What will my eyes  see: serenity or Hell?

What will my ears hear : scream or melody ?

What about my skin ?

Will it be too tight ?

Maybe too bright of Heavens  light?

Cold from the table in the mourge?

Will Dear Lord take my soul into his arms ?


In the absence of the spirit and soul

I will take my body off as a cocktail party dress .


How soon will the event happen from now ?

No one can find out until it happenes and you come out .
