Searching through the sadness and the screams

On the verge of madness and the dreams

I chance upon a stranger in the night

I tell him of a promise that was broken,

Of a horror better left unspoken

In hope he might take pity on my plight

He stares unblinking 'till I meet his gaze

Red eyes glowing in the thickening haze

Until I stand transfixed within the gleam

Conscious but bereft of any power

I stare upon deaths final hour

And in the end, no one hears my scream
