Engulfed by the darkness,
I lost my way.
Thinking about the past,
I lost sight of the present.
My vision blurred by the tears,
I forgot to see the light.
As if my throat just closed up,
I forgot to ask for help.
But I was wrong to have despaired,
It wasn’t the end of my story.
It was only a sad chapter,
Until I remembered to turn the page.
When I think of death, I feel alive
Death isn't something to be afraid of
It's something inevitable and fighting it is futile
Thinking about it is a little strange at my age
But not thinking about it would be even stranger
Because when has death cared about the years
It can come to anyone at any time
We must be vigilant and stay prepared
Don't let it surprise you
Don't let it deprive you of the joys of your life
It is inevitable, that much is true
It is the unknown, fearing it may seem natural
But when you live the way you have
How bad could death really be?
It might even be better
Death is your friend, only if you'd see
Surrender to it and it will take care of you
Go willingly and it will lead you to someplace safe
Don't make a fuss
Life has no right to be better than death
It's just the other side of the same coin
Death is a beauty, nothing to fear
Some even wait for it to appear
Some hope it comes sooner, to some of us
It is very, very dear!

I enjoyed this story from Ivy's point of view. This takes place during the time Ivy and Rachel meet and become partners. They are not friends yet. Their friendship and partnership has come a long way.
This is the first graphic novel I've read. I picked it up because it was The Hollows! I wasn't crazy about some of the artwork and it took some getting used to. I had no idea the work that goes into creating something like this.
