The Only Light

Sun, 06/08/2014 - 17:05 -- ReneeB


Darkness within, Light outside

The solo light gleams

Giving this lonely room some warmth

But not enough

These blood red walls seem to cave in

Exposed with no shade

But it shines, still

Like a candle in a hurricane

A vague flicker occasionally occurs

Yet unyeilding

Although the darkness surrounds it

Slightly ghastly

My Only Companion

Fending off the blood curdling illusion

Diminishing shadow monsters

Repelling dark savages

BOOM-BOOM my young heart thuds

As fast as a jittery rabbit

Running from the horror

Of the memories within
