Darkness

Everything is cold.

The night

The wind

My soul.

 

I see you approach.

Your eyes meet mine, filled

with darkness. Darkness that pains

my heart…

I stare at that darkness.

It burns through my being

and I long to bring back

the Light.

 

You start to talk.

Your fears find their way

to my ears.

You turn to me and ask,

that darkness getting deeper:

“Why can’t I do anything

right?”

 

I want to scream

“It wasn’t your fault!”

But I know you will

only hear it deafly. Thanks to

that darkness that covers your whole body.

Unwilling to let you

escape.

It tries to stop me, to push me away

But I refuse to budge.

 

Then,

With the blink of an eye,

you’re walking away.

I reach out my hand

call your name

But part of your darkness

has found itself to me.

It covers my mouth

It keeps me stuck,

forbidding me to follow;

to bring you back

 

I watch your figure

disappear.

I feel the cold surrounding me

Leaving me here

in my very own

Darkness...

 

The End
