They called me a plague.
I awake into darkness.
Gentle clink of chains that bound my ankles and wrists.
The mortals have finally captured me, but I will never be tamed.

Shouting from a crowd, then light.
A torture chamber.
A iron maiden.
I hiss and spit to any that come near.
Yanked by my chains, I am weak from hunger.

They force me inside and close the door.
A thousand nails pierce me at once.
Blood slowly pours out of the wounds.
The light fades.

~

It's darker now.
Muffled cries and screams.
It feels like a dream.
Warm blood all over me as I drink.
Fleeing feet won't get far.
All their blood is mine.
They released the beast within.
