Living Among the Dead

Postby Storylover02 » Sun May 18, 2014 4:34 pm

Living Among the Dead

A mockery of who they once were.
The dead arise and walk again.

Nothing is left.
His booming laugh,
Her gentle smile.
It has all rotted away.

Nothing but decayed flesh,
Rotting, stinking, falling from bones.
Clothes in tatters,
Teeth, bared in lipless black snarls

Ever hungry, ever consuming,
They prowl for flesh,
Never resting, always feasting
And never sated.

Yet we remain, huddled together
Counting scant bullets
And honing rusted knives.
Living among the dead.

I must say, I've never read a zombie poem this good in my life.
Points for originality, and I also love the wording! Brilliant :)

So what do you see? I had just written it as a zombie poem, but you've got me curious.
