Knell of Death

Chilled
air iced
clinging
breath
uttered in fear
eyes wide
locked on turning knob
blankets 
pulled to chin
panted whimpers
closed eyes
go away!
Fetid 
stench of death
cling to beliefs
erroneous
infallible
indestructible
uneducated
no matter what
words upon paper
say
waved around
like bible’s truth
proving
vast intelligence
hung
upon glittering diplomas
bought
paid for
integrity
morality
honesty
dined upon
silver platters
encrusted with rot.
Blood pools
pristine sheets
shit covered
death spattered
corner
phantasm hovers
splitted grin
teeth 
crimson coated
fade
chained to death
dragged
screaming
into the dirt.
