Soul Searchers

The Dark Side

Prowling under cover of darkness,

shrouded in death cloaks

of mourning,

they seek wanderers of the dead

who move among the living,

trapped in limbo-like stasis,

lost between two worlds.

These soul searchers

carry out their duty of


as they swoop low

collecting misguided unfortunates,

hiding them beneath the folds

of their billowy robes,

lest the hoarding reapers

of hell

discover the wayward roamers

and snatch their innocent souls

to meet their devilish quota.

Night after night

the searchers seek.

For multitudes of lost souls

dwell amidst the breathing,

many not even aware

they have died their death.
