Jessica, deceived in life, gets even when she receives a second chance to come back.
I awaken when a cold blast burns my skin,
Where am I? It's black as a yawning grave,
Uneasy thoughts come forth, but try to be brave,
I feel around, what’s encasing me in?

Urgency sends forth action, I need out,
Relief settles fears when the door unclasps,
Climbing out, panic takes hold, and I gasp,
“It’s a morgue!” Angry, I send forth a shout.

I look down at myself, my body’s all blue,
Chilled, I cover up with a surgical gown,
And walk out on an empty street of town,
Knowing I'll soon bring the devil his due.

My thoughts focus on who put me on ice?
Ten names run through my mind, I think twice,
And soon figure out why I paid this sacrifice,
My mind clears with a need to be precise.

A scream penetrates the night, I tempt faith,
Crazed passion, and rage claims my mind,
Who's the lowlife who left me maligned,
Whoever brought me back, I’m grateful.

I soon found my betrayer, “You murdered me!
He fell down to his knees to plead his case,
Guilt was plainly written all over his face,
Shock when he spotted me filled me with glee.

As I walked nearer he clutched at his chest,
My Zombie-looking presence scared him to death
I walked away, and heard him gasping for breath,
Sensing the devil near, I said, “Be my guest!”

Feeling better, a bright light shone before me,
I walked towards it feeling lost and adrift,
My heart begun to beat as I felt my body lift,
Lord save my soul, so I’ll soon be free.
