The Reaper

It awakens for one time only,

For one purpose,

To take the soul of the dying,

To end a person’s life,

The dark haunts this soul,

It tears it down,

Making it easy for it,

It who seeks darkness,

The only place it can dwell,

Is in a soul of the damned,

The souls that can not be saved,

From anything,

It is the thing that people fear the most,

They loathe it and curse its name,

saying it is evil, and dark,

They are mostly right,

The sound of the blade when it strikes,

Rings out in the night,

The blade of death that takes a soul,

Takes it down into the dark,

The reaper,

That is what they call it,

It haunts the dreams of the living,

And shows them no mercy.
