31 DAYS OF POETRY- DAY 9- DEATH REHEARSAL- by Omoyele



Darkness encapsulating 
numbness o'er me roll
Skull vibrating
awareness is lacking!

As a tumult the sea
So my eyes see.
Happily sinking in my life jacket
with awareness' abode in a safe locket.

With eyes shut
Tutorials I got from hades.
With breath short,
Experiment I had in sheol.
With death shot,
I returned with my head hurt.

Great adventures
Grave experiences
Great lessons
Hades gave me.

Granted bail,
Set out to sail-
Sailor's gone
Ship burnt

I stay and slump 
Or leave to live
Contemplating there,
A blow I welcome!

Eyes opened 
Body numbed
Lips quivering
"Oh! I love this brunt"

Dead as a scone
Alive as a stone
With the fire's force-
Cracked and crunched

I find each crumb
Awakening to its whole
