The Ferryman- Picture Prompt, under 100 words Contest Entry

Acheron, river of woe
Into its depths the obol I throw
Kharon, the ferryman answers the call
The boatman places me under his thrall
My soul he carries to distant shores
The world of the living I’m part of no more
Persephone’s kiss I long to receive
My death has honor, this I believe
I step off the barge and walk to her side
Thanking the ferryman for the smooth ride.
