Death at the door...



Demise doesn't appear so unpleasant.

He appears sincere and friendly.

He doesn't offend you

He takes away the discomfort

You'll be contented with me not here correct?

Or am I being egotistic to take my existence?

You don't care one or the other manner.

I'm a reminiscence

A sleuth

An inaccuracy

A ruthless rumored

An appalling being

I warrant this don't I?

Speak to me I do.

Be straightforward

Discontinue your dishonesty

You placed the death at this point.
You get to be the death angel.

Whether criticized or agreed upon. Somewhere I can totally let down my hair. Think as I wish, Think as I can. Somewhere i can be me, and not care who knows, or sees me. No judgement, complete freedom to be me. more…
