1. The Watcher


 

A void of sludgy nothingness awaits 
A dried up strand of mermaid's hair trailing like a triumphant banner
Caked in a shroud of dirt and plague and grime
Feeding on broken hopes and shattered dreams

and 

Boring me
Watching it
Ignoring me 
Watching it

but

Its whispering melody of catcalls and jeering
Penetrating my skull with a fist of icy hellfire
Bubbles emerging, raising their heads tentatively above the surface
Popping with a shout of relief and of escape

and 

Taunting me 
Watching it
Haunting me
Watching it 

but

A silent still, foreshadowing nothing more to come
Just a spiralling eternal abyss
And a vast expanse of dull grey water
Slicing an infected gash into the skin of the city

and

Breaking me
Watching it
Forsaking me
Watching it
Hating it
