to the black

27.9.08


powerful until the leash rips
stumbled on anyway
with eyes opened in terror in front of the dark
a hound for the light astray
screams in his head fight the lead
feet unsure and trembling knees
the black closes in
the screams break out from his head to his mouth
just to be swallowed
from below it grips his ankles
moving up it soon freezes his legs
unable to move he cries out
voice breaks as the cold reaches throat
with no feeling left the body falls
died in darkness
on his own
nowthing was there
because no one had told him
it’s not the darkness alone you should fear.
