Locking in on a target
A natural selection
Walking fragility hiding in a facade of strength
Tragically unaware of exposed vulnerability
Zeroing in on the weakest part of you
Slowly closing the gap between safety and terror
Never revealing the immediate danger you’re in
Your pace is brisk and with purpose
But you’re really going nowhere
Your solitary spirit is irresistible
Time to squeeze it out of you for good
You should’ve kept walking
Everybody else did
Caring was your first mistake
The second you turned your head
All rational thought was exterminated
Amongst the oblivious
A silent response to your muffled protests
You’re drowning in a human sea of indifference
The collective passivity amuses me
Your humanity quickly draining
Yet you stubbornly cling to life
The harder you fight the less I care
When you finally go limp
My work is done
It was as if you were never there
