You always know it coming
Castings its dark looming shadows
Like the Demogorgon from the nether world
Power disruption, grid failure
No mobile signals
Everything around you malfunctioning
Still you are not ready
No armour, no weapons or spells
All you do is run, trying to escape
It catches up with you
And you live your worst nightmare once again
You are dead .
Game over .
Start again from the last point of advance.
That’s how the game of life goes.
There are unlimited lives indeed
Nitros and gems and other perks to earn
But you never seem to cross this level
Where you battle and win despair.
You are stuck
With time looping and leaping
But you don’t quit.
You play over and over again
This game of life and despair.
