I did it again,
I have become their bloody prey.
I’m slowly getting used to how the
My pleading eyes stare at the distant nothingness.
I have become their struggling snack.
A being easily replaceable, who the
Drag and throw away.
Sharp teeth dig deep in,
My still throbbing body.
I am already unconscious, the
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.
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
His eternal kiss of death takes
My meaningless life.
