I felt the fire consume me
Yet again.
It had been three days since
The red-death’s last visit.
It always came back, the one thing
That I could count on was
Even though it is dark and
Utterly revolting,
It is the
Only thing
People can count on.
Nothing else.
Not a man.
Not a woman.
Not even the innocence of
A child.
Just death.
Just death.
