Angel Of Death - Poem by Udiah (witness to Yah)

In darkness of the night
I spied him in a tree
Sat I froze by the sight
He was looking at me
The summer's heat became a chill
The angel of death at his kill

My heart skipped with the fright
Blinked my eyes to bet'r see
Glanced back with all my might
Parted he my comp'ny
My chest was quickly pounding still
The angel of death at his kill

I did rise and take flight
The fear made me to flee
From darkness into light
To free captivity
Unbinding my soul from his will
The angel of death at his kill

Many years since that night
Gazed I on that braz'n be
Mem'ries of still incite
Fears of my slavery
Existence of him makes me ill
The angel of death at his kill

    This is a majestically written poem in a beautiful form. I cannot attest to those naysayers below. Every line, indeed every word is perfectly placed - and couldn't possibly be replaced. The content so alive - so wondrously wrapped into my conscious that I did not even notice the form upon first read. The A-C-a-c- and B-D-b-d are both marvelous and invisible. Very well done, and rather spooky.... Exceedingly Poe like..... (Report) Reply

    Only four stanzas of this poem are readable. For rest i do not think it is adding any beauty. But four stanzas are super complex of your imagination (Report) Reply

    what's with be in Gazed I on that braz'n be? ? , , , , , , , , being? beast?

    i like it. i like the ryming, and the unique arrangement of words to save words and help make rhymes. i like the contractions and repetition of stanza-ending line.

    To free captivity....this throws me a bit.
    i at least don't mind the repetition of death, nature, fear, and angel, but it makes me think you may have been getting paid per word!

    i read something from google about you. someone (some professor?) said you are a god-believer or somethin', but 'he' also said that your poem indicates that you fear death. i wonder if you ever told anyone that you fear death. hmmm? you can tell us!

    i find it interesting that i (and others) jump to the not-so-based-on-fact conclusion that a poem portrays the author's life or beliefs. it could be that a poem is totally unlike the author. i have to remind myself of this sometimes.
    thanks for sharing. scaredy cat! ! to MyPoemList. bri :) (Report) Reply

    Very good poem. Fear carries one through the poem without breath. I wish there was some realization or personification of the angel's character. I liked this poem, please read some of mine! (Report) Reply
