(Beneath the currents, even light must die.)
Denied their final mercy, houses lost
And forsaken, eyes weeping shards of glass,
Stare mournfully at one another from
Street to drowned street. In waking dreams, they see
Cataclysm, a world dragged through the Mouth —
Dragged into the endless oblivion.

Another body falls
This strange infection continues to grow
Surrounding our every move
Look, in the corner
Such a ghastly sight
Those red eyes filled with sorrow
That festering decay of the green death
His body ravaged
How can he exist?
Who would want to live that way?
Stealthily, I maintain my distance
I will not fall prey to this vile demon
The rot will not overtake me
Turning the corner I see even more victims
Carousing throughout the corridor
The infestation searching for hosts like zombies for brains
Only a few of us remain strong on this funeral barge
Defying the poisonous torture
How much longer can we survive on this floating prison?
Our friends destroyed
Our search for the cure must continue
Another man falls
No one is safe
Our lives ruined
All hope lost!
The HauntingWhen the room across the hall begins to whisperThe Haunting1 day ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
And the shadows on the ceiling start to creep
When the air inside your lungs begin to blister
And you fear that you will never get to sleep
It’s as if there’s more than wind around your windows
Or the sound of little birds out on the roof
Maybe souls inside your home are stuck in limbo
Is the screaming in your basement more than proof?
When reflections in the mirror begin to tremble
Or you notice other figures tucked behind
You must use all that you know to disassemble
All the monsters that were sent to break your mind
Sometimes when all of the living least expects it
All the dead come out to play, come out to slink
You’ll be terrified before you even know it
No time for you to breathe or even think

Own home and no one seems to realize its nervousness, not excitement.
Though it looks to be that even she mistakes it as
Such. She smiles and speaks pleasantly in the
Way she knows would seem normal, knowing people would worry had
She acted any differently. Never straying too close to a person, she keeps every
Gruesome though to herself and yet she really
Fears abandonment. By who? People she desperately
cares about but never lets in? People who are open and show such honesty even
When she herself
Cannot? It's pitiful. Possibly even morbid
In the way she cannot seem to understand the basis for a fear she cannot explain
Always fumbling about in the dark she calls her mind, control relinquished.

World everyone calls their own,
Monsters lurk around every corner, hidden
In the dark, resourceful creatures they are. A woman could turn and
Be in for a fright, found the next
Morn' with blank eyes. This unending
Pattern is everywhere though trying to make the best out of the worst,
We refuse to see how ever-lasting it really is.
