Favorite Quote:
"Memento Mori."


I am scared.
Hands and ankles clasped to a metal table,
White-washed walls inspire spasms of uneven breaths,
Irregular heart-beats,
Body and mind unsynchronized
My thoughts flying faster
As my pulse slowly falters.
I am dying.

Slowly.

Close my eyes and brace against the bite
As you break
Every bone
In my body.
I breath slowly.
Inhale, and lament screams unholy,
While I hear you laughing, ripping at my chest coldly.
I collapse in on myself,
Blood, guts, and gore spilling contents onto the white-washed floor, until
I breath
No more.

Just before I take leave of this world
I open my eyes to find that of my demise.
I see
A mirror.

The author's comments:
This can be taken many different ways- and I intended it that way. However, the main idea behind it is the notion that we as individuals are addicted to our own destruction. The narrator in this is undergoing torture, and the last two lines indicate that the one torturing him/her is himself/herself. Take that as you will.
