"it's impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might has well not have lived at all-in which case you fail by default."

He came by night with unnerving fight,
With feet as light as air,
Sent from a great power to kill within the hour,
Fight back if you dare.

All clothes are black upon his back,
His face; dark as midnight.
One long knife with which he strives,
To kill with delight.

Shaggy hair and hands are bare,
To grip his deadly weapon.
Dark and deep is his gun
That makes you bleed in the clothes your in.

He runs past to the house that’s last
Not making any noise.
Climbs the stairs, quick but with care,
And kills with great poise.

This was an assignment inspired by the poem titled "The Witch" by Jack Prelutsky. It's definitely not m best work but I hope you like it.

Very nice. It had an interesting rhythm to it that you don't see very often. Good imagery and a good story. Perhaps it could be expanded or more detail could be put into it so that it could be like a picture in the reader's mind. Good job. 4 stars.
