Shadow out of darkness
Fluid is the movement
Silent steps of passage
Quick is the moment

A crimson line is drawn
Rose petals upon the floor
Life gives up its essence
The shadow stalks once more

With economy of deed
Death cliams Her next prize
Steel delivers the message
Life slips from shocked eyes

In time She comes to us all
Cloaked in dark secret
The message always the same
Only question is - How will you greet it?

Alllways an intriguing question.....how will we face, or greet, Death. I don't think we'll know until the time comes....if we see it coming.

Good show! Conjures up a lot of imagery. You've communicated your ideas well here. Lets hope it greets us with less mystique though...

Personally, I think Death is just an average Joe / Joan taking care of business wherever business takes him / her. This piece probably should have been titled "Assassin," but from the perspective of the one who wrote it (my character in a roll-playing game) the Angle of Death had descended.
Yes Emmy, it was meant to give shivers. I'm glad I succeeded. Thank you.
Gentlemen, thank you for gracing my work with your responses. I hope we can all meet our respective ends with a smile on our faces and with the anticipation of a new journey.
