555 – Velvet slap

A whispered
Thunderclap.

A gentle
Punch in the face.

A subtle
Scream.

A lipless
Smile.

A deep
Final gasp.

Death watching
Your soul
Thru a friend’s
Dead eyes.

Time’s
Cold hands
Ripping thru
Your mind.

Shitting fear
While keeping up the pace,
Steady on death’s face,
Vomiting bile.

Force your whole system
Into a cold restart.

One foot, then the other.
Run to stay alive.
