Z

The last letter of the alphabet... Death appears to the deceased. Soul asks, "Why are you here? Why can't I go back?" Death collects Soul. Questions of "Why?" quiver through the universe. Death rides as earth as his heart and people are his blood. The Soul keeps lamenting. Death takes Soul to the Judgment Portal. "Soul, do you want to know the answer of all eternity?" "Yes." "Z." "Z?" Death replies, "Z comes after the letter Y." October 1st 2015 Contest: Your First Poem On Poetry Soup Sponsor: Silent One

This is so clever, Chantelle! Brilliant, really. Hard to believe it was 'only' the first poem you posted! But then again, 'Y' not?! Cheers, Gershon
