Omen

Scriptober Day 14 Prompt: Omen

Why would humanity opt to assign a face to death
Perhaps it is because we all secretly crave to gaze upon it
Ashamed to admit it still, we select only the most fleeting visages
To be glimpsed at just the right time for only a moment
The thrill of it lasts much longer
