A Letter From Death by Kenneth Vincent Walker



A Letter From Death


Dear Recipient,



Though you can’t see


Me through the dark


Glass in the darkness


Of your mounting fear,



I sincerely assure you


That I have come for


You and you are why


I am explicitly here.



You can feel me and


Sense my presence.


Hence, the tension


Between your ears.



Your heart rate rises,


Your brow perspires;


An acknowledgement


By streaming tears.



For you needn’t be so


Frightened of me and


You’ll find this transition


As peaceful and natural



As melting snow slowly


Yet steadily disappears.


Fear of the unknown; a


Criticism cast upon me,



Yet I’ve come to release


You, to set you free of this


Worn-down ravaged body


Whisking you far, far from



Here unto a blissful eternity.



Sincerely,



-Death
