The Reaper

The Reaper

A Poem by Dark Beauty

Reaper's depth
ebb and flow
the crisp cold transforms me
contemplation of death so sweet
that cease the flowers forever more

Stagnation untwisted
sheaths fall away
uncovering my darkened beauty
ravish the thoughts of day
dust rise upon my darkened reigns

Unlocking the gate
rusted old chains break
welcoming this death
I search no more
uncovered anew
Reaper's death

I breath once more
with blackened breath
a bitter lust
Death is painless as I laugh
no more fight upon my soul
Reaper's depth consumed me
As I have let go

When the reaper appear. Hard to advance the game of life. Good description and strong ending to the poem. Thank you for the excellent poem.

I love this! My favorite part is the last stanza-the final submission to the reaper's merciful dark touch.

Amazing. "..of death so sweet That cease the flowers forever more" is a phenomenal line. I also like "with blackened breath A bitter lust". This is sort of an abstract art in the way of poetry. I like the way you have portrayed death.

some seek death .. and cant find it .. some seek life and cant find that. i think to truly know life and have a greater respect for it we need to have some acquaintance with death.
