Vultures

I breathe another wasted breath,

Take one step closer to my death,

A long lonely road lies ahead

With vultures who circle round the dead.

.

Decisions that have lead me here,

Were made on whims or in fear.

Regrets, things that plague my mind,

I fear I can't leave the past behind.

.

Step, by step, by step I lead,

My history not far behind.

Beat, by beat, my heart starts to bleed

As darkened thoughts begin to recede.

.

Falling to the floor with a silent sound

Alone in the dark, no one else around.

The voices hushed, torment no more.

Free at last? Let my dark soul soar.

.

Circling in the sky,

Upon blackened wings I shall fly

And feed upon my deathly deed,

As all vultures whom me precede.
