Death

Unseen I watched her stop eating and sleeping, broken she wasted away while her very being crumbled with despair and loss. She became gaunt, almost skeletal, withdrawn shutting out the world. Lost in a maze of confusion, trapped between loyalty and betrayal, after all, he had done, she still loved him. He was neither honorable or worthy.

Pitying her and her behalf I filled his dreams with sobs and cries of suffering while sprinkling his soul with the light touch of paranoia, and cursed his heart. I called upon him in the darkest hour of the night, so years turned into months, months into days, and minutes became seconds.

Trembling he meekly asked my name. Emotionless and unmoved I remained in the shadows of his mind said nothing, and stared at him without speaking. Once again, his voice tainted with fear and hope for a reprieve, he asked me, ‘what is your name?
I smiled and in my softest voice whispered in his ear,
'Death.'
