Become one of us...
I hear them whisper to me.
Join us, they say. Become one of us
Their fingers brush against my skin, and I shiver, wishing I had brought a jacket with me to protect me from this literal nightmare.
We know you, they whisper. We know who you are and what you want.
One of them grabs my hand. I scream. I scream and I scream, and then it lets me go, and I’m so cold.
So very cold, all the heat’s gone, and where’s all the light?
JOIN US! They scream now. SUFFER LIKE US!
I want to leave, I want to leave, but I have no where to go, I can’t run away, they will follow me wherever I go…
The whispers grow louder and louder and it gets colder and colder, and then I’m frozen and floating, and I’m dying and I’m living and…
Join us, I whisper to our newest victim. Become one of us.
