Bound and left for the beasts,
what awaits is no end
No shade finds my flesh,
and the catching fibers
are slowly burnt to a crisp
And such a darkness,
the vision of my eyes,
Whatever lies ahead
The rotting time,
The old home of my mind...
the dust and asbestos
that corrodes
what fragments remain.
left for my demons-
I'm simply waiting for time
to drag me away and down,
for the rotting feast...
to begin waiting
for this life
to fade away
with every bite.

The path, fraught with decisions and turns, leads us all to the same bottom of the pit.

Excellent notes.

This is SO sad because I watched my Mother deteriorate to the point where she died with this horrible disease!! Really great picture portrayal, though!!

This is absolutely awesome, very well done. And a slow descent? Lucky; I seem to be getting a rough shove towards the edge of the pit. No stairs or anything here.

I think the author here has not drawn the picture but is only responsible for the text. This is a common thing amongst writers on deviantart, they take a random picture for promotion of their writing.

You should Google the artist Arnold Bocklin. I love his paintings, especially the Isle of the Dead.

Memento Mori - "Remember that you too shall die"

Probably my favourite quote :)
Also, it's an artstyle :P The picture at the top is of the style "Memento Mori"
