Crystallized Spirit of Decay

The crystallized spirit of decay
forms around my body.

Flaunting itself
and covering us in lies.

Moved by time,
the crystals
break away from our bodies,

leaving us as cold damp masses of flesh.

We cry out to be hardened and ornamented by deception again.
But time does not reverse itself for human pleas.

And so we die our soggy deaths.
