Need to Feed

Popcorn and assorted snacks in hand 
My vision obscured with the theatres darkness 
The streets permeated with shrieks of horror 
Artificial blood oozes earthward from the victims 
Flesh being feasted upon 
Brains gnashed into pudding 
Goosebumps slither up my body 
Lights illuminate the deadline of the movie 
Bewilderment dominates humanity 
Our perception dazed in abhorrence 
The pavement eclipsed with hustling bodies 
Genuine vital fluids cascade from carcasses 
Sinews chomped on 
Squishy matter engorged in mouths 
Horripilation wriggles in me 
Hope abandons existence 
Despair fluctuates through me 
My sight conceives facts 
Asphalt collides with my face 
Hemoglobin departs out of my possession 
Body tissue separated from my leg 
My cerebral cortex out of reach 
Agony scorches inside 
Endurance beckons me to flee 
Delirium sears through 
My eyes dim and hazy 
An alley my last mortal destination 
My internal juices idle 
Epidermis mutilated 
My mind discontinues 
Death replaced with the need…. 
The need to feed

    Jillian, welcome, Interesting experience of a slow transformation, perhaps to becoming a zombie?
