The Savages

by Fruzsina Bényei-Anirudhan

 

I did it again,

I have become their  bloody prey.

I’m slowly getting used to how the

Savages

Approach,

Chase, and

Overbear me.

 

My pleading eyes stare at the distant nothingness.

I have become their struggling snack.

A being easily replaceable, who the

Firece savages

Snatch,

Drag and throw away.

 

Sharp teeth dig deep in,

My still throbbing body.

I am already unconscious, the

Frenzied predators

Toy with me

Pin me down, and

Tear me into a thousand pieces.

 

I am dying an agonizingly slow death, leaving a bitter

Taste in their mouth.

I’m still alive, but soon will be gone.

With a wide malicious grin, the barbarous

Savages feed on me.

Munching approvingly.

 

Bending over a me a red-brown

Pair of eyes. With the most tender look that

Calms me down. But it is still him who finishes that the

Other savages

Have begun.

His eternal kiss of death takes

My meaningless life.
