Black lives matter.

Death Poem #3

Death Poem #3

by Angela Alberto

I was minding my own business

washing the dishes at our sink

When Death ran across the field last night

as fast as they could

cutting down the wheat shouting

" This is way easier than wood!"

Their bony arms in the moonlight

shone

as they raced up and down the field

I said to my husband

"Is this for real?"

The water dripped from my hands

as I took a moment to blink

When something outside the window

truly began to stink

Their face pressed up to the glass,

they smirked and said 

"You better wash fast!"

and drew a heart on the window pane

where their breath has past

I scrubbed, scrubbed, scrubbed

and washed, washed washed,

I got all the burnt oatmeal off the pot

Death was coming closer with every swipe of their scythe

I knew this would soon 

be the end of my life

Finally they stopped running

and turned to face me again

Wheat was stuck in their cloak

I still hoped this was a joke,

with a sigh I pulled the plug

from the drain

and looked out the window again.

No longer an image of a skeleton appeared

yet all my friends and loved ones

That I have held so dear

My dog Ginger, from when I was 5, My horse Amy

(Oh how I cried!)

Aunt Theresa, Uncle Tom, Grandmom Ruth, Pop pop Krex,

so much love I felt

from the right to the left

The smell of lilacs came over me

I felt something grab my hand,

warm and steady

I looked and saw a black cloak

yet under it was pure, shiny gold

Death smiled and said, 

"May I walk you home?"

My heart full from what awaits me

I kept my hand in theirs and said

"I am ready."

  • Special thanks to HACK VANISH, a professional hacker I’ve been hiring for the past 2 years because, I find him to be an outstanding hacker who has aided me in various hacking related issues, ranging from fixing my poor FICO credit score of about 437 TransUnion, 462 Equifax to 802 plus excellent score, tracking my cheating husband’s phone and currently has helped me recover my lost crypto funds from an online scam investment I recently ventured into, I must confess he is the best, quite brilliant, ever since I discovered him through a positive review I saw on Wallet Hub and reached out to him via Email: HACKVANISH @ GMAIL. COM, and Phone: +1(747) 293-8514, to which he responded in less than 10mins, I have never regretted working with him, he’s been quite helpful and highly efficient.

  • Hi, I’ve been searching for help on how to get my ex lover back that broke up with me 2 years ago.. I was traumatized by the break up and nearly wanted to commit suicide but I thank God that I got the contact of Dr Jumba the spiritual father that helped me to get back my ex lover after much searching of help from different places. When I got in touch with Dr Jumba , I explained everything to him to he gave me his words of encouragement and told me that he was going to prepare a spell for me that will help me get back my ex lover within 24 hours and I believed in his words for I was referred to him by a friend who he helped and right now, my ex lover is back and we are living happily together to get married next month. If you need any assistance whatsoever like getting a lover back, lottery winning spell ,pregnancy spell E.T.C. Then, I suggest that you get in touch with Dr Jumba now through his website https://drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.com or Email: Wiccalovespelltools@gmail.com .
