Appointments

A peek at the voices that bruised the bar room,

surrounded by a sea of familiar faces

Dimmed lights surrounding me

With a warm glow like autumn

The smell of alcohol burned my nostrils
 
I gave not into temptation and quietly waited,

for tonight I knew he would materialize

He lurked in every corner and shadow

Nowhere and everywhere

As vast as the Sahara

Engulfing as an ocean 

He could swallow you in,

to never spit you out

Then suddenly he was there

He made his presence known

As some cowered in fright,

feeling their last quaking beat of the heart

Others scuttled in fear,

as they heard the rattle and screams of war

For they had never seen him,

so close and so near

Not every man or woman ran

For those who had lived were meeting an old friend

Everyone expects Death,

to not come for him

For he can make the whole world crack

As if god himself took his mighty hands

Bending the sky

To form a ring of life

Going hand in hand with Death

Oh what a show

The tables upturned

The bar room in disarray

I knew Death would come

For it was me who invited him today
