Fighting the Dark by Savanna Zachau

A long tunnel of darkness stretched far out before you

So far that you can’t see the light

As the darkness seeps in, into your bones and your blood

You look back and you know that it’s too late to run

For the entrance is gone, now there stands a wall, and it glares at you, tall, black, and dreary

Now the darkness seeps in, choking out all the sound

Suffocating and squeezing you, making your head spin around

It takes hold and blinds you, doesn’t allow you to see

Nor hear, or feel, or even breathe

It beats you down

Brings you to the floor

Makes you not want to fight anymore

And as you lose your will to fight

You are now, yet another, victim of the endless night.
