It Consumes Us


It comsumes our thoughts, our memories.
It consumes us with its extremities.
It has consumed us through the centuries.
All it leaves is just miseries.
Some help it consume their memory, it's just their tenancies.
Can't you see?
Death consumes us...
Sometimes it's with cuts.
Sometimes it's trucks.
Sometimes it's just life's deluxe.
Life might be rough, but Death definitely consumes us.
