Can Death has a softer side.
Octoberfest 2014 Week 1 Prompt


Is death a cold stone with no heart?
Does he venture and notice life at all
Or does he just stay cast in a darkly, villainous part.

Do his hands touch death and restart
In other forms when age does fall
Is death a cold stone with no heart?

When life moves on and does depart
Does he shed a tear, sob or bawl
Or does he just stay cast in a darkly, villainous part.

Hidden under hood, do eyes dart
And watch as life does enthral
Is death a cold stone with no heart?

Does he follow, watch, but not take part
See the brightness open and send the call
Or does he just stay cast in a darkly, villainous part.

Alone, on his journey, does he impart
Bits of beauty back to life away from urban sprawl
Is death a cold stone with no heart?
Or does he just stay cast in a darkly, villainous part.
