Fading To Black (any name suggestions?)

Fading To Black (any name suggestions?)

The inevitable has come,
Knocking on wooden door,
I open to succumb,
To fall onto floor,

Black.. Mysterious, radiating cold,
Death marches in,
I knew this had been foretold,
From end to begin,

Chokes the life, from crippled being,
Time ticks,
Life fleeting,
Given Death’s icy kiss,

I free fall into oblivion of doom,
Blackened soul rise,
Body rest’d in fancy tomb,
I meet my inevitable demise,

All that remain,
Is Death’s reign.

I love this dark portrayal, death has always been a fascination of mine, not knowing what happens. I've a lot of respect for death And I hope to welcome him into my life rather than unexpectedly meet him.

Great poetry Hazel.
