The Queen's Dagger

Rookie (July 31 1997 / Vermont)

Cross My Heart


I'll cross my heart,
but I do not hope to die.
If the reaper takes me,
I will not run away,
neither will I invite him to stay.

Death is neither a friend, nor foe.
And yet he has so many enemies,
waiting to win a victory over him,
but he smiles coldly and knowingly,
for he knows that he cannot lose.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Another one inspired by Children of Bodom, this time it was the song, 'Follow the Reaper'. I am not afraid of dying, but that doesn't mean that I want to die.
