Is This Death?

Another day I wake, another day it’s the same. I feel like I’m starting to forget who I am.

What was my name again?

I can hear them calling - searching. I think they’d be surprised to know that I may not have the soul they so desperately long for. The clocks hands are still ceased. I pray for release, screaming for a god to hear my pleas.

It’s hopeless.

No one’s there, or if there is, it’s not answering my prayers.

What a sick and twisted game.

Through my window, the sun still hangs. For days, its sat unmoved at noon, like a golden medallion streaming rays through the shutters of this room, but I can’t feel their warmth. It’s sad not even the sun can warm my frozen spirit.

I glance at the clock again, “11:38”. I’ve lost track of time, but I feel that it’s been damn near twenty days. I haven’t ate, nor have I hungered. My thirst, quenched, without the taste of water. It mattered little either way, I couldn’t move anything while in this state. I couldn’t even lift the lunch, untouched on my plate. Everything was bound as if it was tethered to an unfathomable weight.

I look out the window into the streets. The cars, the people, everything still idle. I feel not even the pulse of my heart’s own beat. One would never understand this indescribable silence. A silence so silent, it screams. What a feeling of defeat. Absolute desolation, it’s harrowing to say the least.

Have I finally tasted death?

That’s the only logical answer it seemed. But this isn’t how it was suppose to be. I don’t think. And what are those things with their obsidian eyes and decayed teeth.

I collapse into the corner and bury my face in my knees. I want to cry but not even tears will grace me with the presence of release.

I’ve always been one to stay to myself, but this is madness.

I scream out. I don’t care if they could hear. I wanted them to. Unhallowed be their names. Thy kingdom come, my will undone, I’d rather be tortured in the flames. What have I done? What have I become? Take me. Take my soul. I no longer run.

They came.

They saw.

They won.

Brandy Shipp: i enjoyed the story, but the author should make it available through your sister company, whichtheyhave not, i find that strange,so one cannot finish reading it. my suggestion would be to remove the author, as it makes for a huge disappointment to read this far and not be able to finish

Eniola Asoso: I liked this book a lot, as it had a lot of horror and gore (which I love). Also, the plot was exquisite, and there were plot twists at every turn. The book shows the animalistic qualities that all humans have, and the havoc that can happen when it it unleashed. This book would be great to apply ...
