The World of the Second Hand by CreepySheepStudio The World of the Second Hand by CreepySheepStudio
:icontso1: This was my entry for 'The Make Ugly Contest'. >_> I honestly didn't know which one to go with so I went with the 'undead'.

-----------

I take a breath, finally having arrived at my destination.
I take another, as shallow as it was.
All has been lost to the smoke and yet I still smoke.
Ironic how I'm the only one left.
I breathe again, inhaling the smog that eternally shrouds this city.
We all knew it would happen one day. Some day.
I stare at the graves in front of me.
Some of people I knew, some of pets, others of children.
It's strange. Being the only person alive, I find myself here with the dead quite often.
Cliche to say it's the safest place on Earth, but it is. Especially now.
They don't like to come here. I don't know why. Maybe it reminds Them that they're dead.

I inhale again, choking on the smoke.
Over time the world had become covered in smog and smoke.
I honestly don't really know what it was like when it wasn't.
My dad told me it was beautiful, there was green grass and none of them.

They are what's left of us...
When we die, the cancer that rots our bodies escapes.
We become mere shadows of our former selves.
When I die, I'll be one too.
When I die, They will be all that's left...

:icontso1: It's possible! Maybe we are creepy doppelgangers?

Wow neither of us made it in the TOP 40 lmfao? I guess the Deviant art staff either Hates us with a passion or went blind mid way through judging oh well :(
