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 just been dealing with a lot in my life right now including deaths of people really close to me and breakups, so I wrote this. Tell me what you think.

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.

Lol, me neither I just watch a lot of discovery channel :P It was just a concept though thought it would be a dark idea to go with my dark topic of death. But i'm glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the advice (the title thing), greatly appreciated :)

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..
