Death Escapes Me

The doors are closed.
Locked with no key.
The secret is hidden,
No one will see.

My heart is silent,
Beat by the whip.
I cannot speak.
Bloody, my lip.

All light escapes me,
It shines no more.
Clouds form above,
Rain starts to pour.

Time is my foe,
Old and grey.
It yells in my ear,
"You'll pay, you'll pay."
