SKULLS

The  girl  was a mystery an anathema out of orbit  and out of  sight

She  moved  silently  shrouded  in  dark moving  by  night.

She had  an endless yet important  job  to perform

All skulls  must  and  souls  must  be  collected  by dawn.

 

Moonlight’s  silver  was all  she  had  ever  known

No warmth  from the  sun,  in dark she has  grown

Her  dress spun  from  cobwebs lovingly made

By spiders oozing  silk thread around her parade.

 

Though the night  was  all that  she  knew

She longed  for  the  sun  and  to  see skies  of  blue

Sadly  as  part of  Death’s  family

She  was  condemned to the dark, never to be free.

 

Skulls, and  innocent  souls of women, babies and  men,

Her  tears long dried up, she  gathered  again and  again.

Pleading and  begging  for  time off did  her no good

Death simply  demanded  she  did as  she  should.

 

The  girl  was a mystery an anathema out of orbit  and out of  sight

She  moved  silently  shrouded  in  dark moving  by  night.

    That’s sad but beautiful. She should have been in Terry Pratchett’s Death’s family. His Death had a holiday 🙂
