The Darkness

Location

Darkness consumes me. My surroundings slowly seep into my body. I have no control over my body. I try to move but something has tied me down. All I can feel is the tears that roll down my face. I try to call for help but no one comes. The depression goes through my veins like a disease. There is nothing I can do to stop it. All I can do is think about is all the times he made me laugh and smile. I still try to call for him. I try to tell him to come save me again, but even though I am screaming at the top of my lungs, he does not hear me. I let tears flow down my face. I cannot seem to stop them. I feel it slowly creeping up my body. I try not to feel it. I try to pretend that it is not happening, but it is. There is no way that I can ignore it. I try to pull away but it is stronger than me. It pulls me to my feet. It makes me break my invisible reflection. I feel something sharp in my hand. Then I feel another feeling, but I have felt it so many times before. I feel something dripping down my arm. I feel a sharp pain. I begin to scream. All of my breath escapes my lungs. I try to scream louder, but I am still not heard. I start to fall. I never stop. I see his face. I reach for him but he fades away. Suddenly I hit the ground. I open my eyes and look around. I feel someone holding me. I turn around and I see him. I start to realize that it was all a dream. But I look at my arm and I see red. Then I feel hands around my throat, draining me of breath and life. My world fades away. And so does he. . .

This poem was amazing. I could relate to it a lot probably why I liked it a lot more, but great job. Keep writing!
