THE GRIM REAPER

BY: JOYI UZIGAMI

 

 

He comes in his black cloak

Full of fear and lost souls.

With his crooked smile full

Of spider and scythe

Full of blood and the

Forgotten departed.

He comes into your

Dreams and sneaks

Inside your heart and whisper

“It’s time to take you home.”

He raises his weapon and

He prepares to strike.

He exits your house

Fast as wind and quiet

As a mouse.

Your soul is being dragged

Like a dirty cloth. Dragged

By his bloody scythe. You begin

To scream for help, but there is

Nobody to hear you. He looks

Down upon you are you can

See it red eyes pierce into your skin

Like a stake through the heart.

He turns around and starts to laugh

His ghoulish laugh shakes the trees and

Frightens the birds, and suddenly he

Completely disappears with you along

With him.

Everyone sees you “asleep” in your bed

But you don’t wake up. They cry out

To the Heavens” WHY DID YOU TAKE HER?”

The heavens replies,” We didn’t take your

Daughter. The GRIM REAPER did, and

There was nothing but dreadful silence as

They heard the laugh of the devilish

GRIM REAPER.
