but nobody came

As the final child of the catacombs fell your plastic knife driven into their heart as they evaporated into the wind you didn’t stop. you kept searching desperately for a new toy. someone to slice someone whose fragments you could scatter in the dying breeze but nobody came. As the ruins-keeper fell laughing maniacally as your eyes hardened and hers faded away you thought you were finished but it was only the beginning. as you continued onward you wondered if anyone had missed out on your justice ashes to ashes, dust to dust but nobody came. As the guardian of the frozen wasteland reached out to you mercy flowed from his soul but it bounced off of yours and into oblivion. as your fist hit his neck there was no going back. walking through the empty streets of a desolate town you wondered where everyone was hiding cowering in fear all because of you. you wondered if you could break down their doors and take their lives with it but nobody came. As the heroine made her last stand and melted away into nothingness the world’s last hope was gone and the survivors burrowed away. unreachable. hidden away in a place of monstrosity you pondered how to draw them out so you could slaughter them like the demons they are. but nobody came. As the final star burst leaving behind nothing but burned out embers you prepared for the end. Curious as to what would happen when none were left. as you walked through the abandoned city gazing upon your final destination you contemplated a world where nobody would remember you like you never existed at all but nobody came. As the fallen prince told his tale of how he had cried out for mother for father and when nothing happened he cried out for anyone to save him. but nobody came. As bones crumbled to soot your soul had become ice. your violence your hate you were scarred and when they appeared the demon who comes when people call its name you took their hand and the world was gone. a blank void just you. your soul. and them. and as you realized your mistake you called for anyone to pull you away from your wrongdoings to save you from your crimes. but nobody came.

I meant in regards to people being hooked on such games and doing little else.. In regards to genocide, I was in the former Yugoslavia, when serbs were carrying out ethnic cleansing of Bosnian Muslims and have done many talks against genocide..

I don't know how you relate to committing genocide. Should I be worried? (And it's actually about a videogame lol)
