Welcome, Death

Burning long, 

Burning strong.

Fill yourself with sin, 

You'll find yourself a home. 


Flames burn eternal, 

Searing through your thin, delicate flesh. 

Hope for escape?

Don't hold your breath. 


Screams of agony,

I feel the pain in me. 

Is there truly a God?

Or just an agent of agony. 


Hear my cries,

Feel my suffering. 

Fear of demise?

I welcome death with arms open wide.
