The other side

The grass aint greener
on the other side
Heavens beauty fades
As nothing is left to see
Eyes bursting like glass
Blood pouring through the cracks
Dripping to the floor
Tiles soaking in wet

Touching the warmth
that left my body
Moistening my skin
Taking over
Like a disease
Softening me

Life going backwards
No words
No smell
No taste
Can't walk nor feel
All that is left
Is but a puppet that breathes
