Lonely Claim

I am your time that is up Your story that’s come to an end Your regrets and words unsaid. Your what ifs and maybes. Your whys and cries. Your hows and tries. Your breaking point and last stand. Your surrender…

Everything I touch decays,
Everyone I visit cries
Everywhere you go I visit.
I am your haunting shadow.
I am your lonely darkness.
I know not reason or fairness.
I know not harshness or kindness.

Some I bring sorrow
Others’ I give relief
But all coin me with fears.
I am neither harsh nor fierce
I don’t see your tears
or feel your soul as it sears.
Decay, is my favorite pair of shears.

Your life is my game
Young or old I claim
Rich or poor I claim
Healthy or sick I claim
Believer or sinner I claim
Happy or sad I claim
Good or bad I claim
Strong or weak I claim
Your soul is mine to claim.
Hurt is my maim
and loss my frame.
Death is my name
and man I always tame.

I am your time that is up
Your story that’s come to an end
Your regrets and words unsaid.
Your what ifs and maybes.
Your whys and cries.
Your hows and tries.
Your breaking point and last stand.
Your surrender and longest slumber.

I am never early or late
You can’t argue with me or negotiate.
You can run but I don’t procrastinate.
I don’t care if you cry or hate.
You have no choice but to partake
in my claim without having a stake.

Those I take, into ashes I make
Those I spare, I bid a retake.
Those I touch I usually break.
Heed my visit and prepare to partake
in joy and goodness for your own sake.
But don’t expect me to give you a break.

I am the cycle of beauty and decay.
I am the parable of value and time.
I am why you treasure and whine.
I am your solace and oblivion.
I am the end of man’s dominion
I am man’s hope for reunion
with loved ones and communion.
I am death life’s interjection
and eternity’s introduction.

My Name Is
My name is the destroyer of pleasures
the conqueror of kings and citadels
the soul bounty hunter- Azrael.

Death or the angel of death is known in the east in Arabic by the phrase ” hadimul lathat” which literally translates to destroyer of earthly pleasures. He permeates citadels like gusty winds and overthrows kings from thones like a turmoil taking over with famine and plague. That is death and Azrael is his personification.

It makes me realize that Death is not a scary thing.

Death is so scary to the point that if you die today, you’ll never know what will happen next; you’ll never know where we will go. But aside from the frighten we’re feeling from death, we tend to ask ourselves “will I be able to touch them? Will they feel that I still love them?”. It’s scary and sad to think that when you die, you can never be with your loved ones again..

Casey Alcober

Yup, this piece, made me really, realized, how deep “death” is. And death, i think, is not something you should be scared of. But honestly, I am scared. LOL. I cant afford to lose another loved one. and i think, i wouldnt be able to bring back my shits together if death knocks again.

We can’t do anything if its our time now to face the death of ours, but we can make a choice that before we leave all the memories we make was worth remember by our loved ones.

All of us will come to a certain end. Death is inevitable. We must accept that. We must be ready at all times. So we must live of life to the fullest. Death may bring loneliness to others but it may also bring joy to those who suffer and those who lived their life because they knew that even if they leave this place, there is one thing that marks them.

Death it is something we will face at one point in our lives or another. An inevitable one, it is something that I will not choose to face, or even want to anytime soon.

Basically you’re right! Death is not the ending, it’s the final awakening.

Most of us fear death, because we never know when or how will be the end of our life. If we seize every moment of our life, there is no regret at the end and we can peacefully continue life after death.

An inevitable ending game for the human being. This is the most scariest game everyone was required to be on it, no escapes no shortcuts. Article made every reader realize what you’ll leave or what you’ll get when the time comes. “I am the cycle of beauty and decay” the significant line I read from the article, there’s too much emotions and impact on it.

Right after a long sentence is a period awaiting like in a long journey that there is destination that may occur subsequently, in short an end. It is true that people will never be ready for something like this. This may happen at the time we least expect it and may be delayed the moment we asked for it. And again we have nothing to do but to accept and let Him take control. As for now, let us not dwell on the thought that this may happen anytime soon rather focus and enjoy what you have today until it… Read more »

I hope that the time would come that I am just waiting for my death because I’m already fulfilled of all the things I’ve done on earth rather than to be anxious when grim reaper is going to take me.

For me, Dying is the most pure form of Beauty. We Return to our Innocence as a molecule of the body of the Creator, only to be Reborn in a higher form than before.
Death, a beautiful reality of life none can deny. It is not something to be scared of it is just a start of new journey.

The feeling of being alone brings out the emotions that we cannot express in front of others. We drown with those emotions that it affects the way we communicate with others. And sometimes we cut out people without realising it. It is hard but being alone shouldn’t make us lonely. It should give us time to contemplate on the things that we have done. We should fight the state of loneliness and we should be strong to face the future. Because life doesn’t stop when we are lonely. Continuing life may be a struggle but we should not give up.… Read more »

All of us would goes to an end. We can’t escape our death because it’s the cycle of life and death is inevitable. Death is most human afraid of, so I supposed there is no happy ending because it is an end or gameover of our playful life. Life is like a game, and we our all players. This game doesn’t have any reset button so people must enjoy this game and live this life to the fullest.

Death is something that you cannot control. If it is your time you cannot stop it. Death is a really scary thing but we should accept it because all of us will go through it.

Everything will come to an end. If it’s our time, it will. We can’t force things,we can’t predict when it will happen. It is scary if you will think of it so you better cherish the moments while you are living.

Death is something we should not be afraid of because it is inevitable and natural. The only thing that we can do about it is to make our life worth living for.

Everyone has their own schedule from being visited or to come with death. Death brings sorrow and grievance but everyone has their own time in this world, and no one knows how long one stays in the surface.

Death is something that we will face someday. And we just need to be prepared, it is indeed “scary” but we must face it. It is not the end, it is just the beginning. As we are still living in this world, do the things that you want to do before you regret. Long live!

I realized that death does not choose who, where and when it will take. When its your time you cannot do anything about. We will just accept tha fact and go for it.

Death is the only thing that no one can escape. We will never know when and where it will come. And it is the hardest thing to accept.

Death is the end of someone but not of everybody. Death cannot be controlled because all of us will come to an end. We just have to accept the end of our time so spend it well as long as we can.

I personally is not afraid of dying, because I think that when I die I will in my atmost peace and even though I don’t know what will happen next, I will feel very relaxed. I think if I die, I have already done everything and did my purpose innthis world.

Death is our final destination. This might bring sadness to our love ones but on the other side we must fearlessly face it. So, better live your life in the fullest and make everything worthwhile.

Death is a natural occurrence to one’s life. The concept of death gives worth and value to life. It is the end where there’s no pain, sadness, and illness but an eternal rest. But even how beautiful I or you describe it, it is not a thing that anyone would wish for.

Cyce of in and out,
An awful game of life,
Commencement of journey,
Termination of Drive
You can run,
But you cant hide
Better to face with faith
Then live with no regret

Death is the name of the Game
where no one can ever prevail

A whole lot of us will come to an end. Death doesn’t chose whoever you are. Accept it and be ready for everything that might happen.

Showing the natural order of everything. I think Death is somehow one of the best thing that can happen to us, Death gives value to almost everything. Not just the existence of something but knowing that everything will soon comes to an end.

Joyce Andres

In this poem I realized that even we are healthy death would come. Death don’t choose who will they get. Death is always near us waiting for the time they will get us. Like in the poem if your time comes there is no more chances so we better live to the fullest. I am afraid of death because of my family I am afraid that I would live them sad but reality is reality we live and died in this world accept it or not time will come for us.

Death is a scary thing for sure. Because you will not know what will happen next as the times goes by. For me Its so very hard to lose your love one and I think that’s the most scariest part is that losing your love ones in unexpected way.

It’s the scariest thing above others, because it is the time that second chances doesn’t exist anymore. We can’t be with the people we love, that’s why while we ate living make the most out of it. Don’t do things that you may regret until the last breath of your life. Yes it is the saddest part of our life, but when the death came to us there’s no turning back to our lives.

When your time comes you will just have to give in because even if you try you will just end up and.die.

Fearing death will only make you weak in terms of accepting the truth. Yes I fear death but it is better to accept this fact and live your life to the fullest without regrets.

I’ve always feared death, who doesn’t? Death is one concrete example that we have no control over the things that are happening around us, we’ll never know when our last breath would be.

Sometimes I wonder when will I die. Am I afraid? Am I ready? I don’t know. Death is something we can’t control. All the people in this world will face death because nothing is forever. Knowing that we will leave anytime soon hurts and those people who are left behind suffers the most. I realize that death is the beginning of another chapter of our life, we need to be ready.
