Death Does Not Wait

Stuck inside a collapsing building
Eyes dart to the exit but unable to find it
Trying not to panic as fire approaches
Death does not wait

As embers dance around me
Smoke holds me by the neck
He stands in the corner
Death does not wait

Trapped with no way out
But he has never missed before
Held down by the weight of it all
Death does not wait

So much pain yet my eyes open
He looms over me
Watches me rise covered in ash
Death does not wait

He stares me down
I stumble away from the ruins
Always staying close by
Death does not wait
