Poet Rally week 16

A 55 word story


It creeps silently
Ticking like a time bomb
Devouring the building blocks of life
Black roots spread
Eating into the essence of life
Seeping into cumulative corners
Unrelenting, Uncaring
Just simple cells, multiplying
Without end,without beginning, infinite
It could happen to you,
Think upon it as you sit negligently
waiting for life to begin
A miracle occurrence
How precious your moments are
And how easily that ether
Is taken
