Into Darkness

A Poem

I watch as the world crumbles around me,

Nothing to do to stop it.

I watch as the people around me die and rot,

Unable to intervene.

I watch as survivors change and fall to their anger,

Words dying on my lips.

I watch as everything becomes dust, and I start to wonder,

Thoughts spinning through my head.

I feel the rush as adrenaline fuels my rage,

Power giving me a choice.

I act on what must be done, knowing what it is,

And don’t hesitate.

I watch as the world crumbles around me,

Satisfied at what I’ve done.
