Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around once and while you might miss it.

I can’t escape
No matter where I go
The gun bangs and rope hangs
And I’m in the middle of it
Too scared to let go
But too certain to stay

How did it even get to this?
How did anyone let it?
Now death follows me around
Like a stray dog begging to be let in
But too ugly to find a home
Ears torn
Legs bleeding
Eyes gouged
It limps on three legs steadily following you
It doesn’t make its move until
Then it morphs
It becomes a mastiff
Saliva dripping down
Eyes red not with blood but with power
Chasing you faster than you can run
Yet you try
Until you can’t anymore
You turn and
And suddenly
Death is just an old, forgotten dog
Searching for a home
It whimpers
It bleeds onto your wrists and speaks to your eyes
Don’t be afraid
Please don’t be afraid
Never be afraid
I would never hurt you…
