Lost and Found

I am lost and forlorn
a wayward child
dropped from above
stuck fast to this abyss

First I call and holler
then I shout and yell
until finally I grow hoarse
from all the screaming

Lightning bounces
from star to star
as the thunder crashes
through the volcanic depths

Mistress death came by
told me she could end my sufferiing
if I agreed to be her lover
for all of time and forever

I whispered
in my nearly hoarse voice
if I could have some time
to think all this through

She agreed to come back
and visit with me on the morrow
where upon I would give her my answer
and left me in my suffering

When she returned
after a night filled with much pain
I was in a different mind frame
than the day before

I told her yes
and agreed to the end of time
to become her lover
and so my suffering ended

In a flash so bright
in a sigh so loud
and with a mighty heave
she pulled me from the abyss

Safely into her arms
warmly into her heart
through the door from this life
and into her home of death…
