November PAD Challenge: Day 3

November PAD Challenge: Day 3

What Scares Me?

The dark

The dark closes in
I am alone
I swear I hear the demons circling me
from above
and below
The wind whips around corners
slapping me in the face
rustling leaves on trees
I imagine what creatures lie in wait
staring at me from those branches
as if they know
My heart is sinking
with faith being lost
darkness consumes
creeping like tar on lungs
choking my breaths
telling me my time is running out
I fear this!
A change must be made
light must shine through!
