Dying Light – Part 1

Dying Light Poem Part 1 by Jon Logan at Immortal Wordsmith

What terrible wretched creature am I?
In the deepest moments of night, wandering
Waiting, hunting, stalking.
My eyes watch as you pass by.
Then the agitation creeps in,
With urgency I strike, quick,
Hands at your throat as yours paw at mine.
A scramble, gasping no screams.
A sigh.
You’re passing out and then I reach for my knife,
Gently those eyes close, they hold no more fight,
Across the neck, a strong and confident slice,
Blood sprays  violently, spasms,
Then nothing, no more life.
Then relief, tranquillity, calm sets in,
Fleeting though, momentary,
I must leave this place now.
We have shared our time together,
That moment has passed.
Now it is for others to spend time with you,
You’re fading from my sight,
A fond little memory,
From the deepest moments of that fateful night.

Relax, breathe; everything will be alright.
