********The Pit and the Pendulum by Edgar Allan Poe

********As the blade swings closer, he waits in a frenzied anguish for the blade to begin fraying his robes and vainly struggles to free his arm.

Cam you please, visualize a character at this stage of the story, with details of the character.

The blade is shiny and surreal. It however becomes more real as it approaches his face. It is sharp and unforgiving. The man sees glimpses of his own anguished face as the blade swings back and forth. The man wonders if this is the last time he will ever see himself.
