Death Swallows Me Whole

Death swallows me whole,
Like the digestive ways of snake.
It doesn't bite you to warn you of what's coming,
Telling you of your terribly unlucky fate.

It only opens it's mouth and consumes you,
Bringing you to a world of complete emptiness.
Nothing to comfort you, only grief, sadness, and sorrow.
Though it's quick, the pain continues none the less.

Yes, death can be so cruel.
Chew you up, just to spit you out in agony.
Leaving you when you're most vulnerable,
Having you second guessing what you see.

Death is like a very long tunnel,
And at the end there is no light.
A journey of never ending darkness,
With nothing comforting in sight.

I've never been swallowed whole by any thing but i get it. I love the rhyming scheme and I love the title-a good title is key to getting these people to tell you how they feel..

So true, I love writting depressing stuff they're more relatable and have more meaning sometimes then other topics (but that's just my opinion). And thanks, I have a few more coming but as you probably know it takes forever for them to get approved.
