Once Human

Darkness falls swiftly And everything seems to sleep This desolate place is silent And shadows begin to creep The only wretched signs of life Are looking for a pill Desperate for a fix Ready to steal maim or kill Strange creatures once human Roam this empty street Wasted bodies sunken eyes Bones picked clean of meat Not living simply existing With only one thing in mind Looking like a walking corpse That even Death left behind
