The Devils Document - Poem by Sara Douglas

I’m sure it will only take one look
To ask yourself why
You must have never known
How much it meant to die
But I have a reason
That I hope you understand
So this is just why
And this is where it began.
When the clock turned inside out
And my skin crawled away in defeat
Bubbles ruptured in my veins
The taste of my blood is sweet
And I’m falling sideways
My brain’s devoured by a parasite
Toss me in a grave and topple me with dirt
I’ll rot away in a silent scream of night
I will welcome the roaches
To feast upon my flesh
And rest within my bones.
My happiness comes so fresh
I have been seeking comfort in life
But I found it in my death
Shake hands with a lethal fate
And fall into a last breath
It should have been so clear
The moment I came to life
That the only moment of bliss
Would be beneath the devils knife
