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
