Casualty

Chaotic threads of thought rip through my mind,
boiling and seething with madness.
The sharp bite of pain ebbs and flows as my life’s blood
drains in darkness.

Chaotic threads of thought rip through my mind,
boiling and seething with madness.
The sharp bite of pain ebbs and flows as my life’s blood
drains in darkness.
A downtown street, or a vast, inhospitable wasteland…this is no place to die.
I don’t know how I got here, and barely remember why.
Unforgiving, endless heat has rendered me helpless,
as sounds and flashes assault my senses.
There seems no end to this madness.
