Hyndland Secondary School: Katie Adams

 

 

Death

You arrive in your sleek black car
Your cold cloak shadows the dark dead street
Beep Beep Beep

You are the fragile grey woman lying still in the hospital bed
You are the drunk teenager staggering across the road
Beep Beep Beep

You smell of dark musky puddles
You taste of rotting flesh
Beep Beep Beep

You are the drops of sorrow falling down friends faces
You are the bird left to wither on the side of the path
Beep Beep Beep

You are the world getting slower
Beep Beep Beeeeeeeeeeeeeep.
