I watch and wait As the darkness takes over the sky’s The day is coming to an end As it slowly loses its light and dies. As the darkness takes over A peace comes along It’s a feeling of protection, Nothing will go wrong. No one will go out in the dark They are afraid of what’s not there I’m not sure why… Maybe just a fear they can not bear. It makes it safe for me though To go out for as long as I want. There won’t be anything around To come along and haunt. The darkness feels so safe… A sense of belonging remains. It’s almost like I can feel it Slowly filling my veins… Wait this isn’t right… What’s going on? The feeling of protection Has suddenly gone. Now I feel myself running But what am I running from? I look around Feeling so numb The cold air Slowly chills me to the bone I start to realise I’m not alone… Something is there In the darkness, hiding away. Am I safe? It’s not possible to say. So I run and run Until I can’t breathe anymore. Again I look around My lungs feel so sore. I sit on the grass As the darkness get’s stronger. I don’t think it’s gonna wait now. At least not for much longer. I stumble to my feet And try to get home But the darkness is all there is now As this field, I roam. This is when I realise That the darkness has won… It’s absorbed me now And it ways a ton. As I wonder If I can ever return to the light… I get carried off Into the darkness of the night.
