My Visitor


” Want to know a secret?” something whispered in my ear.

I woke up from a deep sleep and looked up and around my dark room  with sleep filled eyes.

” No, ” I said ” I want to sleep. Leave me alone.”

I pulled my covers up over my head but I heard it again, whispering in my other ear. ” I really want to share this secret with you. Come out from under those covers. I won’t leave until you do.”

I worked one arm out from under my blanket. Held my head up into the cool night air and gave the voice the finger. ” I don’t want to hear it. I was sleeping. Why did you wake me up?”

I felt it sit next to me. I heard it sigh. ” I just want to share a secret. I want to talk to someone. I want… I want someone to listen to me.”

” Why me?”

” It’s really hard to understand you, come out from under those blankets. Talk to  me.”

” I am talking to you. So tell  me. Why me? Why are you bothering me with your secret? It’s late and I need my rest.”

” It’s really an important secret and I want to share it with you. You’d understand. I know you would.”

” And if I don’t?”

” You will. Come on. Come out from under there.”

I pulled the blankets down to my chest.

The woman with the secret was standing next to my bed, she leaned over and whispered in my ear, ” I’m not afraid of you anymore.”

” I see.” I said sitting up.

I reached down and pulled my scythe from under my bed. I swung  my legs over the side of the bed, stood up and cut her down.

She fell into a heap next to my bed.

Then I swung smoothly  and swung  I neatly  until she was a stack of bone and muscle  in a pool of moonlight on the floor.

Very soon after the Ravens came and took her away bit by bit.

I don’t know where the Ravens take them, but they talk and chatter the entire time they are working.

I put my put my scythe next to me in my bed and I pulled my heavy dark blankets up around the both of us.

Sometimes the living come to  me, sometimes I go to them

and between those times I sleep like the dead.
