I am

Evil incarnate

I see fear

Hear screaming

Smell decomposition

Taste the souls of the Damned

Touch my sharp scythe

I am Death.

I'll see you soon...

The author's comments:
People fear death. I tried to look from His perspective, feel the power of changing lives on a whim. As you read this, picture death smiling as he says the words.
