Death in Disguise / The Other Side of Love

 

Eros walks among us, virile and strong,

Sowing his seed as he goes along.

He plucks pretty flowers on his way

And leaves devastation

For all to see.

 

He’s not impregnating them with love.

He’s not impregnating them with life.

Death is what remains behind –

Withered leaves, blowing in the wind

Of his thoughtlessness.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  4. I know, but I remember thinking that things always happen to ‘other people’ and that’s the problem I think. Other than dragging them to hospices, what can you do to get through to them?
