terrible terrible terrible footsteps

footsteps reaching

closer and closer

vile-vicious footsteps

tainted-with-dreams-crushed footsteps

devoid-of-pity-mercy footsteps

feigned-with-worthy-honor footsteps

nothing-but-dishonest footsteps

terrible-terrible-terrible footsteps

loud-and-louder-getting footsteps

noises

voices

indistinctive

beating

gasping

choking

inconsistent

gasping

choking

beating

recurring

a final blow

and silence unrolled

stillness

things at halt

the body at ease

the eyes at rest

revering

the last breath
