It's Death Again

It's Death again - He's always there -
Watching, waiting - e'er the stare!
Every time I look behind
Or reach to pull the window blind,
I catch a glimpse of grubby hood -
A little clue to where he stood;
The glint of light that caught the scythe.
Perhaps if I could pay a tithe…
But O! no use, he'll never go.
The adamant phantom; don't you know
He will but wait until it's time
For me to hear His fateful chime? -
The toll that claims my destiny,
To Hail: 'You're next, it has to be…'

    Ah, the inevitable. An honest take on our desires to avoid it.

    wow..yes even with your loved ones, you can sense when death has arrived, to help them on their journey home..although I do wish we would give him a different name..death seems so dead..but I feel it is only
    the beginning of something much greater.. :)

    This poem kind of creeped me out thinking about death so much. I dont know why i even clicked on it, but im sure i did. The poem gives a brief descrition of the feeling of death. Talking about how your next, and how death is awating. Very talented rymes that flow throug the poem. Very well done.

    There are chills running down my spine! You capture the fear of death so eloquently.
