Petrified of Death

I am totally petrified of death.
          Not dying -
     But the horrific daily,
          Moment to moment suffocation
Triple-sealed in body-vital-mind-coffins
     Buried deep under
          Callous ingratitude-rock
               And inconscience-soil.

My sweet Beloved Lord,
     May there be only ever
          Your blissful Heart-Sky.
