I watched Death

I watched Death work tonight

The victim’s eyes lost their light

Have you ever witnessed anything so mysterious as this

There’s a finality and quiet as one slips into deathly bliss

“Don’t use your teeth when you bite me, please”

I said as the fangs ripped through me with ease

I wriggled and writhed to escape my fate

Until finally I accepted that it was too late

This is when the world began to fade away

And with it all the chaotic mess filling the day

Now its quiet and dark

No dogs to bark

Not even the fluttering of the meadowlark

I watched Death work tonight

Worked on me until I had no fight

I am dead with nothing left to say

I am dead so take your Life and go away
