PORTRAIT OF DEAD

Written by: Aneesa Jacobs

Death is a portrait oh so clear 
Stained with blood and tears 
Forcing thoughts into my head 
It speaks what cannot be expressed 
When compared to an eternal void 
In the darkest of moments 
Illusions remain 
Endless pain 
Full of constant fear 
Entombed in blackness
Buffeting winds groan 
Pain enters the soul 
But this is the end I know 
Poured devil seeds galore 
Dying is death's call to us all
Death above all else is life's in disguise 
From the light in our soul all alight 
Only the garments of human flesh die
Death gives you a new face every time
