the kraken

The skies are dark gray 

The seas grow unnerving 

As our ship leads astray

Into the storm


The seas now rock the ship 

The wind blows straight through me

On the handrail I grip

As we begin our descent 

into insanity 

Screams fill the panicked air

Death now wipers in my ear,

“Now is the time for prayer.”

I see his shadow lingering

In my eyes filled with tears

The end it nears
