Death’s Loyal Mistress

It crept in discreetly,

Like a secret lover silently admiring

His mistress engaged in her chores.

The wait had been long…

Too long to hold on to my sanity.

When I knew of the peace and comfort

Only death could give,

How could I have faked contentment

With the many woes that life gave?

From the ashes of emptiness and hopelessness

Rose desire to die, like a determined phoenix.

Tonight, the wait has ended

And so has the need for sanity.

In Death’s embrace, I shall rest,

The sanctuary of love and peace and bliss.

After all I have been for so long

Death’s loyal mistress…
