As I sit and wait

As I sit and wait time is all I have to save
For in life all I am is a slave
To those who search for death

They come as I sit and wait for them to steal
All they see in me is their next meal
They come for the flesh and blood

As I sit upon this step I weep
For they will come if I sleep
To take me whith them to the caves

There they shall huddle in the dark
And they shall leave their mark
As they take the blood and life from those who live

And after they have taken their share
They shall bring us back as one of them, and into death we stare
As they wait for dark to fall so they can come once more

As I sit and wait time is all I have to save
For in life all I am is a slave
To those who search for death

    rhyming is a bit sloppy, Try to use a little more vocabulary instead of using the first rhyming word that comes into yur head. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
