Fallen

Location

She fought the good fight


against the shadows.


We were tough but


they were tougher.


Side by side, we


took them down.


One by one, they


fell around


us; but then


they rose again.


We blinked; we were


engulfed in darkness


blinded by black; then


a scream. It was not me.


She fell at my feet


surrounded by red


instead of black.


The shadows parted, having


gotten what they came for.


Crouched; my tears fell


upon her. Broken, my heart


ached as I tried to revive her.


But none but one final


breath was taken as


her life slipped between my fingers.


 


Heaven will welcome her.
