Death

Death

She met him,

The dreaded one,

The one as dark as a moonless night.

 

She met him,

He who is feared,

Whose presence turns blood into ice.

 

She met him,

Talk of the town,

That bi-sexual, child-loving pervert.

 

She met him,

That twisted mind,

Underestimated by many.

 

She met him,

The axe-wielder,

Terror to many, savior to some.

 

She met him,

Draped in mystery,

That insatiable maniac.

 

She met him,

Cursed by mankind,

Devoid of emotion, a monster.

 

She met him,

And knew it was he,

She begged for mercy, but he took her.

  4. I like the way you portray your thoughts on the theme.

    I have a question though : “That bi-sexual, child-loving pervert.”

    Is that in reference to the fact death takes both men and women, children too? Or is there something more???

    1. my two cents? i understood it that way.
      whatever though, poetry is universal and understanding is…universal 2.
