Sinister Countdown- Isolation

Alone upon this rock so twisting,

Do I hear endless nothing hissing.

Blinding light fades between each star,

Dancing gas giants eclipse a heart.

Spinning away with horrific flight,

Crushing weight between the blight.

Hundreds sleep in rotting capsules,

Like worm-hidden innocent glossy apples.

Hush now wait we’re not alone,

Somethings attaching to our hull.

Our plague is set, ready to flow,

As red lights blink greenish-gold.

Open wide our metallic broken mouthes,

You’ll never live past the walls of our lurking houses.

But shhhhh, listen the spell is cast,

Your hearts have beaten their very last.

-M.E. InkOwl
