Death, Where Are You

Skulking - lurks an unseen shadow
chilling both the heart and marrow
destiny -  your dust of sorrow
                    Death, where are you

Nurturing an endless grudge
at life’s end the gentle nudge
of darkness’ - god forsaken judge
                    Death, where are you

Breathless creature littered path
a trail of tears your aftermath
cold hallowed wail of livings wrath
                    Death, where are you

My pain beseeches you dear death
free these emotions, suppress my breath
beneath your cloak let me forget
                    Death, where are you
