Darkness it does seep, into my soul it does creep. Binding and holding tight, afraid to lose this fight. Weariness follows close behind in the darkness myself I do find. Unable to escape its strangling grasp it has upon me, only darkness do I see.

Writing Prompt Friday (Lost in the Dark)


The lights are on

I can see clearly

Hand in front of my face

Walk at a brisk pace

For I know that soon darkness will fall

And I will see no more

Fear will be to the very core

And all of the sudden it does come

The darkness it falls

The fear it calls

Not knowing which direction

Which is way to turn

My fear it soon does burn

For where do I go

Not knowing the way

I am lost in this darkness

No light to guide
