    Life does not pass me by -
    It simply walks beside me.
    Not hand in hand
    For this is no love affair.
    I simply catch it.
    A fleeting glimpse -
    From the corner of my eye,
    In my shadows -
    Beckoning.
    One slender finger exposed...
    Resonant of our dear Grim Reaper!
    Emotionally chipping away -
    Wanting to play...
    Wanting of prey.
    They; two sides of the same coin -
    Life and death; in the same breath.
    I am their purchase.
    A treat, this life of promise.
    Should I follow the reapers song?
    Is death perhaps the release?
    The peace...
    This piece of me? Unsettled unscored -
    Not one to be ignored.
    Life creeps behind my shadows, still.
    It is MY will.
    And I choose neither one nor other.
    This is MY earth 'neath MY toes
    And these are MY footsteps trodden
    On rocky roads
    Painting footsteps into stories
    Until I'm done...
    Until I AM done.
    I'll let them be...
    I'll let them be.
    Life and death can fight for me.
