Apex - Poem by Nathan Beery

Cold traces the flesh,
Every sound besets a sweat...
It's there, in the darkness...
Waiting watching...
I can hear it breathing...
I can smell the blood,
Frozen in that moment...
Nothing moves, nothing changes...
All know the moment,
When a something greater than you-
Hangs over your head...
Cold eyes gleam in the shadows,
Cold hands trace your flesh...
The merciless beast's breath in your ear...
As cold iron finds your chest...
No escape, monsters in the mind...
Too merciless, and in those moments...
Even God forgets to watch...
As the depraved monster...
Begins it's feast...

    This poem is an attempt at the horror of being lost in darkness with a killer; hence Apex as in apex predator. Thanks for reading.
