Does death hurt?

When the knife digs into flesh
do you fall into your knees in pain
or simply in shock of motion?

When you slip away in the dark of sleep
does the dream still remain
as you travel to worlds unknown?

When the drugs hit your body
does your heart stop suddenly
or can you feel the imminent end?

When the noose slips tight
does your head feel heavy
and your limbs feel numb?

When the water rushes in
to the castle only of air
can you feel your breath cut off?

When the dirt piles over
and the air runs out
can you feel the choking?

So riddle me this,
oh master of death,
does it hurt to die?
Inspired by Rory in Doctor Who, the Last Centurion who died way too many times.

When your body dies and your mind remains awake in those last few moments of knowing...do you feel bliss or despair?

God your writing is so profound. Wish I could buy you a drink and pick your brain!
