Ice flows through hardened veins
no one sees, no one knows
spread on molecules of air
blown to and fro with a growing breeze
blood seeps from pores
tremors take over stiffened joints
breath grows shallow...
Heart beat quickens
An eerie silence...Time stops.
a pool of blood and tears....a body now lays still
Eyes open.... staring at something beyond
arms stretched out....a last breath
the last one,... everyone is gone
empty streets, no children's cries
leaves have fallen, trees are but ghostly shapes
Death lingers here
death owns the night,.. and nothing living dares return.
