Embracing the Reaper
The Reaper stood in the shadows.
I could feel he was lonely like me.
I wonder if I would embrace him
might we both become free?
Does he feel the pain
of the souls he escorts
as bodies are torn
the perfect squares of sod?
Do they wish to dance
across fiery floors of Hell?
Does he escort them
to the gates of Heaven
where they wait
will they be rejected
here as well
by an unforgiving God?
Do they fight the last few inches
outside his grasp?
Do they beg to say goodbye
to loved ones
real and imagined
their last gasp
The reaper stands in the shadows
I have no question he is there.
I wonder if I embraced him
would he even care?
