Trick Of Death

Once upon a starless night, Death's dark dart shot into flight. Through my heart it pierced a hole, Slowly fatal the poison lolled. Ah sweet death, you crept behind, Tiptoed quietly in the blind. Ne'er an average soul would be aware, Or be prepared for "Death's" cold stare. How ghastly is your visit swift, Snatching souls who are lost adrift. Unaware of your presence here, You never announce when you are near. You love to trick your victims it's true, But oh Sweet Death, it was "I" who tricked you! It was I that beckoned you through grief and despair, It was I that tricked you to set your black snare. Life had left my soul long ago, I prayed for your presence, you just didn't know. For it is said, you come unannounced, No man or woman knows when you pounce. A mortal human like me has made you a fool, Atlas sweet "Death" my trick was quite cruel. And as I enter into your Black Abyss, I take "your" place as "Death's Sweet Kiss".
