No Longer Mine
I begin mercilessly, against my will.
I try my best to stop, but I can't.

The lush burgundy veil overflows.
It covers and hides an identity.

As the last bit of hope trickles from my body...
The last bit of life trickles from theirs.
I am no longer in control.
Just a puppet. A pawn on my own board.
A drone in the game of death.
The strings are being pulled by someone...
Someone not even of human flesh.
I'm no ...
