Death by Emeralds_heart

Poem

Death came
riding on the back of a snail
I looked at her and I smile
my first step to digging my grave
with extended palms, I join her ride
on endless times I was lost to time
lost to the world or the cries that surround
all I saw was the mirage, my paradise at last
just one more step, one more view
but somehow she was gone
and I knew I have been deluded
I saw death around me
with a smile at what I have brought
death was fire, smoke and air
Death was the high I bedded everywhere
