Be gone, blackbird

Oh blackbird, blackbird of death
I've heard your call and I've felt your breath
You stalked me for so very long
squawking out the Reaper's song
With talons wrapped around your prize
pecking at my weary eyes
pushing me out on that ledge
closer, closer to the edge
but just before I took that leap
before I took my final sleep
I cried out loud, and my cry was heard
Salvation gone, blackbird
