Don’t Be Surprised No One Cares

You’ve turned white

You feel so cold

You don’t do so well without a soul

Your mouth is gaping

As you gasp for breath

Your eyes are glazing

As you stare at me, your death

And until I hear

Your sands of time slowly stop

I will keep sitting here

And I’ll play with you like a top

I’ll watch as you succumb to nightmarish frights

And bring you to the edge

I’ll make you look into the deep abyss

You’re headed towards at the end

And the whole time I do

As I’m staring at you

As you get quick glimpses of me

Then soon you’ll see

You were my best prize

Such a strong lad taken by surprise

It’s no fault of mine

But yours

You never learned to close decayed doors

You never learned to take in a breath

And as you went through life

You had already internally died

Don’t be surprised when your actions finally catch up to you

And as you watch your skin melts to its final hue

Don’t be surprised that no one cares

When a man with a heart so bare

Has turned away from the world long before this moment
