My Final Plea

For Mark I stand within the flames of hells fires Pained paralysis preventing Escape The black flames scorch my skin Slowly eating flesh from bone Destroying me piece by burning piece I collapse to my knees in painful silence My hands clasped together in prayer My lips still, the words too painful to speak Tears pour from my eyes As I watch you destroy yourself Unknowingly destroying me The needles are devoured by your flesh Your body writhes as the demons take control My heart bleeds with agony As your soul is wrenched from your eyes Your body crumbles Conquered by pure evil The evil you chose over me As you slowly slip away And choke on your dying breaths I take your hand in mine Tears stream down my cheeks, as I feel the warmth fading from your fingers I gaze down into your already lifeless eyes And I feel my heart erupt in flames As I walk away from you I leave my heart behind - a pile of ashes Ashes to be buried alongside you
