A Tale Unspoken

A Tale Unspoken

Death has awoken.
It stares directly at you.
You ask Death, “Why it must be you?”
Death answers with, “Then who?”
Maybe your mother?
Grab her by her hair.
Slice her neck, leaving her with a blank stare.
How about your father?
Grab my axe, chop off his head…..now he’s dead.
No, none of my parents.
For they been true.
How about I just fight you?
You don’t want to fight me, this is not a game.
Someones life, I’m about to claim.
So, what shall it be?
I know the thoughts in your head, should I let Death have my life,
or which parent to sacrifice?
Have you came to a decision yet?
Yes I have, you and I are to fight.

Shots begin to be heard all around.
Death falls and hits the ground.
You sigh, a sigh of relief.
For Death has got back up on its feet.
Walking slowly towards you, you open up fire once again.
Hitting Death right in the head.
For you have just came to your senses, finding both of your parents dead.
You hear a faint laugh, fading off into the night.
Death has just won that fight.

A day has passed, the cops have arrived.
To see three dead bodies with a note to the side.
A note thats been wrote on blood stained paper.
Fear the Grim Reaper.
Thanks for not being here on time, don’t you remember the boy
that called you that night?
He wanted to know what to do about the voices in his head….am I right?
You told him that he was crazy and needed to sleep.
For that is when I decided to creep.
I would like to thank you again, for a wonderful night.
You should thank me for a tale that I gave you to write.
Unless I don’t let you live passed tonight.
Death awaits you, look left, look right.
For no telling, about the next night I shall strike.
Death will not lose…..
Good night and God bless you.
