Death Stalks

Updated on March 1, 2013

Both of the two dogs I had rescued about 5 years ago, died due to an illness they both had, although it seemed that the second death, was influenced more by the death of the first.. she was very lonely after her friend died .

This is the emotion I felt after it was all done .

I hear the whispers

or is it just me...

The sounds of the winds blowing

it's death calling... through the tree's

She is In my dreams too..

always stalking me,

constantly talking ..

watching and waiting

She hears you thinking..

of Why, When and Where

Waits for you to gasp..

for your last... breath of air

Looking out my window

as a dark shadow falls...

there are certain sounds

Death stalking, stalking... as she calls...

I am here...I will be here

always around..

laying close..beside you

Until your body is found.
