Eve

Eve

The eve before eve
Is when you lost your eyes
You refused to see the obvious
Didn’t think it was plausible

You let it take your lungs
So you suffocated
When you tried to inhale
You breathed in a lie

It stole your ears
So you didn’t listen
To the screaming and shouting
To stop, and you didn’t

They purged your mind
So you went mad
Dreaming of waking life
And being possessed by it

Your veins, frozen
So no life could continue
They stayed forever
Wholly unbroken

Then it dug deep for the heart
So you were crippled
Couldn’t feel, couldn’t live
But not dead yet, just miserable

At last, having flayed you open
It hungrily snarled and drooled
Looking at your gaping
Missing insides

And saw a soul
Removed from its defenses
So it took your soul
And you died
