Death's Cold Embrace

Updated on March 10, 2018


I am wrapped cocoon-like in Death's robe. As he presses me tighter against his side,

I feel his ribs bruising my soft flesh. I watch without a wince as the breath is torn from

my lungs and smile as he pulls me closer still – as if our bodies will meld. As my

bones begin, one by one, to snap and the darkness closes in, I feel that peace, that

calm that I have waited so long to feel. I smile and close my eyes – willing at last to

let Death have his way...
