Requiem for a Dead Poet

Requiem for a Dead Poet

 

More valuable once gone

To sleep beneath the ground

The artist chose to say goodbye

For no one could be found

To understand the bleeding soul

Splayed across the page

So many long and lonely nights

Lay waste before the sage

Who sacrificed the day

To contemplate the stars

Pursuing the illusion

That reality is ours

Deep within the scent

Of beauty’s reverie

Searching for significance

Behind each misery

Polishing the jagged rock

Into a gem that shines

We search for buried treasure

The dead poets leave behind

More valuable once gone

To sleep beneath the earth

The artist chose to say goodbye

But he shall have rebirth

Yes, he shall have rebirth
