necrotic time




nothing stops the darkness
from coming at the end of the light
my fears rise in response
to the screaming dreams
that come with night
like ants marching
the footsteps never stop
inexorable entropy
time passes
while the children sing
anthems to the dead
who will never rise
nor bring hope
again
time passes
death laughing
while I decay
instead
time laughs
death is passing by
and I am flailing
in my sleep
