Angel Of Death

Listen, I hear a flapping sound
No, I am not imagining
It’s distant yet it’s from beyond
Clearly, it’s a flutter of wings

Flap! Flap! It’s louder and louder
I think it’s coming to get me
You hear it? It’s getting closer
I must hide – where’s the place to be?

Running now – faster and faster
But the sound is now deafening
Slowly changing into laughter
So I stop then find it’s smiling

What’s this creature? It’s enchanting
I’m paralyzed by its wide grin
It’s approaching, spreading its wings
Clutching me as I return its grin
