Death's Game

by WintersAngel   Apr 15, 2013

Inside a world no one remembers,
Lies a girl who was once fearless.
She battled dragons and won.
Making townsfolk tearless.

Then one day Death appeared.
He took her soul.
Said what was once a brave warrior,
Was now a dark emotionless hole.

The people cried in despair.
Their protector was now gone.
Their world began to decay,
Nothing but monsters roamed from dusk to dawn.

Soon every one had died.
Leaving nothing but an empty town.
The girl had been chained to the mountain,
And forced to watch, her face a blank frown.

Death approached her many years later.
And asked her one simple question.
"Would you like to die now?"
She glanced up at his proposition.

"You may have taken my soul."
She whispered in a broken voice.
"But I will never give in to you."
Death blanched at her choice.

She is there to this day.
Sitting with a blank expression above.
Her town had been destroyed,
But not the ones she loved.

They live on in her heart.
Her pain hidden from Death.
He doesn't know,
That she's already taken her last breath.

    by Someone Invisible've read many poems like this...but this one blew me away...the simple fact that it can be taken as a narrative poem or to speak of depression and pain of a girl who cries on the inside but to the world she's strong...a beautiful write.
