Future Death.

Extracts from this document...


Future Death The city seemed hazy from up here, the extensive, swirling smog revealed the few meters in front of me that I could see, the rest was grey. The sky was filled with a perpetual darkness, only giving way to one small ghostly beam of piercing white moonlight Moving closer to the city, through the gates of fog, the ground had been scattered with shimmering neon lights. It was a fusion of bloody reds, jealous greens, screaming yellows and ambiguous purples all mixed into one gigantic glowing halo.
