Usher’s Fall

cold
dark
earthy
shrouded tomb
home to worms and me
trapped and aware in this coffin
home to worms and me
shrouded tomb
earthy
dark
cold
dark
earthy
shrouded tomb
home to worms and me
trapped and aware in this coffin
home to worms and me
shrouded tomb
earthy
dark
cold
dark
earthy
shrouded tomb
home to worms and me
trapped and aware in this coffin
home to worms and me
shrouded tomb
earthy
dark
cold

    You had me squirming from the very beginning. Simple words with a very descriptive punch.

    enjoy a light hearted week end Tim.

    What I like most about this is the rhythm. The imagery reminds me of Dracula lying awake in his coffin ;3

    Thanks, you undead. Dracula is a good thought. I was somewhat going with the Usher sister buried alive, as she slowly is being driven crazy by her predicament (and I also liked how the shape sort of turned into “batwings”).

    Rhyme on!
