Random Quote

If you play your cards right, I might come and dance on your grave tonight.

Look behind yourself, evil is within
over there, dim, a heart blackened —
out of the way, I’m captured in death
killing me slowly, from within, choking in its grasp.

Within its hand I’m forever bound
in a state of panic, I’ll never touch ground —
time has come to end me now, forever, down
hills of jagged rock, skin, grazed, tainted,
in the world I live in, crumbling, hands choking me
never will I be the same; an ending I replay.
