Darkness

December 27, 2007
By Joy Jordan, Charlotte, NC

The sunlight died
The world cold and unforgiving
Yellow eyes winking
Children screaming
In the darkness
Sounds of howls and nails scratching
against the stone
Blood curdling wails of forgotten mistresses
In the darkness
Pitch black
Cold breath upon the backs of necks
Hair raising goosebumps
Eternal night
In the darkness
No light
No love
No escaping
The darkness
