    Reaper

    Is it you, I feel peering over my sholder once again
    He who brings sorrow and pain
    Prevailer of doom and desolation
    Unending ancient Succubus
    Why has my meager life drawn your attention
    Have you not lost your grip on me thrice before
    Come, I'll roll the dice with you yet again
    To give answer to my unchanged luck

    Grim as your countenance has forever been
    You wish me to join the damned
    With full knowldge, you try, knowing I belong to another
    Has the lesson you learned from our previous encounters taught you nothing
    The fierce heart beating within me cannot be captured in the tangled web you loose

    Reaper set your gaze on another
    Find easier prey, feed upon a lessor mortal
    Council thyself against such a foolish endeavor
    Glare as you will O' Death seek me not until the fire's tounge lick my dancing feet
    Take your menacing grip and clutch those who made your list
    Bother me no more..............

    Very clear and descriptive capturing death's greedy grip on us all! Fantastic read! M-Robb

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
