About who wants her Dead

Death is something

that calls my name.

Every night

when I look out of the window

I see the pain

that hides in my eyes.

I see death by my side.

He calls for me

He tells me I belong in the other world.

That I have no place on Earth.

That soon my heart will burn in a great fire.

A fire that my soul will create

from all of the pain

that it sees and feels.

Every once in a while

I do as Death tells me.

Weather its a simple

cut of the skin

or a burn.

I listen to his words

as he slowly tears me apart.

I have once thought.

Is this the devil?

But I may ask myself

why would someone so big in the world want my soul.

So i dismissed the thought.

Death is himself

and no other.

He works for both God

and the Devil.

But with all the outcomes of my life why

would either want

in their home.

I feel the pain

of in between.

Death or Life.

Who wants me dead,

God or the Devil.
