Heartless Shade

This heartless shade

Stares at me now

Fathomless black eyes

And a wrinkled brow

 

It mocks me with its face

Trembles as I shake

Giggles when I cry

Always there when I awake

 

Coal black teeth

Hide away its awful grin

Suffers me no peace

Oh what a price for sin

 

My selfish deeds

Have gotten me this far

Do I turn in place?

Or reach for the bar?

 

What comes next?

Does it deliver me my fate?

It’s just standing there

Oh god why does it wait?
