A short poem about the grim reaper

Death is coming in the eerie light

He stalks his prey into the night

Devoid of life death will always be

An inner yearning to be free

Lives lost and death their keeper

Lay your eyes upon the grim reaper

 

Paved with souls in the fires

Hell’s shadow walk knows the liars

If death and all his friends do seek

The wisdom of those who protect the weak

 

In death do all our hopes despair?

Leading the way to paradise or hell’s fiery lair

Life is cruel but death is worse

It binds you in eternities curse

 

But when the moon shines full and bright

You see the spirits walk the night

And magic’s veil uplifts to see

The keeper of death, come for me

And so my life winks out like and ember

Leaving those left to remember

Thanx, i think I'm a little morbid considering my tastes but it could also be some certain friend's influence.
