YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE...MAYBE TWICE!
It stands in the dark about to cross the threshold
Face caked with blood, dirt and a story untold
The stagnant stench of rot fills the air
Into dead vacant eyes I stare.
The black, tattered and torn sleeved arms start to rise
It takes all of my strength to silence my cries
Fear grips hard my heart in its icy grasp
Death's mouth opens in a dirtied rasp.
I can feel my heart stop, my warm body tense, sensing my doom
The putrid breath emanating from its lips, fills the room
The mouth starts to gnash, the fingers start to claw
Teeth chew my flesh with it's powerful jaw.
I breathe my last breaths, I scream my last screams
My life starts to flash my unaccomplished dreams
I fall to my knees, blood gushing from veins
The world starts to fade as my life drains.
The pain begins to subside although the feast continues
This monster gorging on my muscle, gore and sinews
The thought comes to mind as I slowly fall
I will rise and come again to devour you all.
