Read Poem: Death’s Love, by Tiffany Pennywell

I didn’t care
That he held the power
To cool my defenses
Death’s cool touch opened a part of me
That I never shared with anyone
And even in his deep dark sadness
I saw a gleam of hope
As I traveled within a world
That kept spouting unknown secrets

New to the world of demons and witches
I did not fit in
Until he took my hand
And showed me that it was ok

An unconventional love
Sneered at from all sides
But I didn’t care
This demon’s heart will love on still
Until Death, himself, departs
