Death has surrounded me,
Hedged me in on every side,
Long grey tentacles encircle me,
Silently embracing my wrists and ankles,
A shapeless form caresses me,
Envelopes me in every shade of depression,
I am showered with its presence,
Crooning gently he whispers lies,
Lulling me, soothing me,
Despair calls me by name,
I am overwhelmed…
…I cry out to the wind…
…I scream into the void…
Death you cannot have me!
Now is not my time!
