Waiting For You

100 words –

Just so you know, that I know, there’s no place to go.

I wait like a jealous lover as the years go by, always around the corner and nearby. My watchful eye waits for you to die.

Time is my accomplice and no deal you strike will grant immortality to thwart me. With every breath you draw you’re one step closer to my dark gaping maw.

I am inevitable like the currents in the blue sea. There’s no way of avoiding me. I am all man’s destiny.

Don’t wait with baited breath, I’ll come, as sure as I am death.
