A Corpse's Euphoria

The Final Moment

There is a moment of understanding between predator and prey when the inevitable finally occurs. Flesh ripping from the body and entangled in a mess of jagged unkempt teeth.

The overwhelming feeling of euphoria when you feel a slight increase in adrenaline, then nothing but pure survival. You feel an urgency to continue to fight against all odds. However hopeless as it may be.

I hope they feel it because my image will be their last view before the blackness fades in. A figment to remember.

Not human, but something of the darkest of nightmares imaginable.

It's deliciously beautiful.
