The Eye Of The Beast

The cold hit me, it froze my soul 
The last gasp of air knocked from my body 
Down, down, down in some deep dark wet hole 
I was lost I was gone, there would be no more me. 

I opened my eyes and looked into known death 
The eye of a beast stared back. 
I knew that I was holding my breath 
Yet desperately trying to claw my way back. 

Its teeth the beast then did bare 
The jaws opened wide and it expelled 
The last meal devoured, how would I fare? 
The last of the air in my lungs I held. 

Bones and bodies of undigested food did surround 
My eyes open wide, fear did abound 
Was I to be the last meal of the beast? 
Was it on me that it was now going to feast? 

Prayers hurled through my jangled mind 
Thoughts of would any of my body they find 
My parents no funeral would they have for me 
As the meal of this beast I knew I was going to be.
