~Darkness~

Darkness...nothing but darkness
Single light flickers...
Single figure under light...
Hair draped over face...
Tears, a mask to hide what is beneath...
Moving in the darkness...something
Gets closer, the something...
Light flickers...
Light swings...
Skin of scales is caught in the light...

So cold...it is so cold....
Alone...all alone...
The figure sits still...
So alone...
So dark...
So cold...

Something steps within the light...
No longer alone...
Behind tail curls within coat...
Still alone...
No one wants...
All fear...
Fear...fear...why?

Creature offers hand...
Takes a while to respond...
Creature patient...
No one ever patient...
Figure takes hand...
Will not look up...

Creature oulls figure into the darkness...
So dark...dark...no longer dark...
Still dark...but not dark...
Something does not...fear...
Everything always...fears...
Not this...

Not alone...but still alone...
Not cold...but still cold...

Not dark...But still dark...

The End
