Deep Breath

Take a deep breath
Breathe in, breath out
You can sense it in
The air, but you
Can't seem to make
It out.

Breathe in, breathe out
You can feel it just
Above you, looming,
Patiently waiting for
An opportunity
To pounce down
On your cold flesh.

Breathe in, breathe out
It hangs over you like
A cold, rough hand.
Its grip firm on
Your shoulder, pressing down
Hoping that you choke

Breathe in, breathe out
His blade is just under
Your chin, ready to split
Your skin and spill
Your blood out on
The pavement.  A slow
And cold death is what
He likes to see.

Breathe in, breathe out
Your skin becomes cold
As ice as his blade
Caresses your skin,
Wiping it's cold steel
Up against your exposed neck

Breathe in, breathe out
Escape from this is futile
What binds you more
Than the ropes around your
Ankles and the ropes around
Your feet is the presence
The thing that looms over you.

Breathe in, breathe out
You can feel that now
Can't you?
You can feel his cold breath
Looming over your neck
His lips almost kissing your
Exposed flesh, turning what
He breathes on into ice.

Breathe in, breathe out
He switches to the other side
Breathing slowly down your neck
His words stick in your mind
The last words you'll hear
"I'm going to drain your life, slowly."

Breathe in, breathe out
Feel your blood rushing
To your head?
That's the effect of being killed
By a cold blooded killer.
Nothing can help you escape
And nothing will thaw you out.

Breathe in, breathe out
Feel your skin split
Feel the blood spurt out
In a clumping fountain
Blood falling slowly and painfully
Your body begins to go numb.
In your final moments just remember
Take a deep breath, breathe in

Then breathe out your last breath.....
