I can feel its suffocating grasp,
Draining me of all life I have left.
My eyes flutter in fear
Then in a dizzy drowsiness.
They slip and slide down,
Without my permission granted,
Until I can open them no longer.
All I do is hear and feel
As I fall into the deep pit
Of depression and...
The monster shrieks with laughter,
Like children playing;
It carries me to a bed.
I feel the fall.
I hear the plump mattress squeak
As my weight falls down upon it.
I slip into an eerie dreamland,
Where love strives
And has neither fear nor mercy
For those it consumes,
Never to wake again.
