The sky was a palette of blue

unsuitable for someone like me

The air was cold when I got near

it always was, I didn’t see the need to change

The soul shivered when I extracted it

looked me in the eye

and smiled one last human smile

she did not say goodbye

I said, embrace me

and come with me


the sky was still a canvas of blue

I took her with me

She held my hand

Saying, I have always been expecting you

I said,

I am death

and I am haunted by humans

inspired by Markus Zusak's the Book Thief
