Who are you, my vision of beauty?
You still seem so familiar to me,
As if I can sense your every move,
Experience your every fear.
I can see you standing there,
Trembling at the horrid sight before you.
Did one of my brothers do that?
Do I need to ask?
Alas, the bridge to the Promised Land.
Our union… Our destiny… Our reality lay ahead.
I saw this in one of your dreams dear,
The yellow towers rising from the depths of the rapids;
The dark mouth opening ahead of me,
It is just as you described… It is perfect.
Where are you taking me?
Why am I following you?
There it is again… My hunger,
Others must be closing in.
I must… I must feed…
I cannot control myself any longer,
The pain is piercing my abdomen.
Over there… I feel two of you in the corner.
I must compose myself… Maybe I can blend in,
But, the pain… The pain is killing me.
It is weird how the infestation has taken control of my body,
Yet, my mind remains sound.
For the most part, I can manage these insatiable cravings,
Control them until the flesh calls to me.
That aroma… That fragrance,
The blood flowing like a bitter gravy over your loins,
I cannot take it any longer,
I must… I must feast!
I am close now, only five more feet.
I do not think they realize I am near,
My sanity sets me apart from the monsters that are devouring the city.
I reach out,
The woman…Sheer terror as I grasp her tightly,
Her shriek echoes through the empty streets,
Her partner turns… Pulling the trigger of her cannon,
How can that be?
The bullet… It tore through me.
I can feel the shards taking hold in my insides,
But, I still stand here gorging myself on the remains of her friend.
First the brains, now, the intestines;
Divine… Absolutely divine!
Her soft skin slides effortlessly down my throat,
Her veins aged to perfection.
Another bullet barely misses me.
I turn to her friend; it is her turn to be my buffet,
That is, unless she runs.
Run damn it… I will not chase you,
I am content finishing off this beauty.
I still have a few bites left before she turns and joins the quest.
Run…. Please run!
I promise I will not follow…
