I trudge solemnly down the street
And try to stay as out of the way as possible
I can hear snow being crushed against my boots
and stop to think about the beautiful sound
Of crinkling snow
As I walk, I notice a crowd
A large crowd of people swarming like maggots
Onto this one rather handsome fellow
He's tall, good-looking, and seems to radiate energy
Whilst staring at him, something primal awakens within me.
Something never felt before within my weak frame
Every time my eyes laid their sight upon him
I had a sharp pain strike my heart
I look at the streets and find a bottle
A green, broken, discarded bottle
I pick it up and lunge forward into the man
As I do this, I screw the bottle as tightly into his chest as possible
He lets out no scream, no sigh, no outward breath at all
Its as if he was dead before I had even touched him
I stab again
Until the pains in my body were satiated
There's a mixed reaction in the crowd
I just stood over him in silence
Until my vision disappears completely.
I wake up in my bed
The room seems destroyed
As if some nuclear bomb went off nearby
I stand up and scan the destruction
As I begin to panic, my phone rings
It's my friend
He wants me to meet him at a park near the edge of town
I accept his offer.
I leave the house and enter the world
I call it the world, because calling it earth wouldn't fit
The sky was red
There was no sun
The concrete had cracks
Flowing through the earth like veins
The air was akin to that of a saunas
Even the tiniest breaths scorch my lungs
I walk down the street, and see something not designed for humans to see
In its purest, most evil form
I saw death
Lining the streets
Their corpses lining the path forward
Or the path back to where we once came.
As i walk further, i see a woman
A pack of men surround her
Like wolves cornering prey
Like Vultures circling the doomed
They toy with her mind
Before toying with her body
I avert my eyes from this ungodly sight
And just keep moving forward.
I stop at the road before the park
And notice a small child in a red dress
On closer inspection, the dress was white
But stained red from two bullet holes
Placed lovingly in each of her shoulders
In her hands, she clutches a small dog
The dog is cut in several places
It quakes softly in the girls fragile arms
Suddenly, and inexplicably
A bus drives through both of them
And leaves nothing but a mess of bones and blood
The dog is impossible to differentiate from the girl
I arrive at the park
And see two beautiful young women
They lock eyes with me, and run to my side.
They introduce themselves as Chaos and Malice
Before clicking their fingers and dragging me off to a large white room
In the room, theres a massive ball of fire
On closer inspection, this isnt the sun, nor another star.
Its my home
Its what i loved
And its never coming back.
"You killed an angel, so god is seeking his vengance"
"Who are you both?"
"People who admire your efforts"
"Where am i?"
"Where you deserve to be"
If this reads like a nightmare, its because it was
