    Poem Commentary

     this poem is about a Childs Death.

    The reaper

     A Dark whisper in the night

    Shadows surround my room

    Who are you I said

    Demons, spirits, wraths, fairies

    Have you come to take my soul?

    Are you my imagination?

    Are you things spouted out of stories I have read

    Who are you?


    Then I was struck

    Felt the pain of a thousand knifes hit me

    I feel off of my bed and felt the cold of death

    It had come to take me away.

    The reaper
