Darkness

 


July 13, 1998


The darkness presses
Close about.
Cold, unyielding,
Stealing the air.


Outside the sun
Warms the grasses
While here within
There is nothing.


The struggle weakens
A tired soul
As the walls of ice
Press downward.


A last breath
A sorrowful whisper
As the darkness claims
Its victim.

Reads a little choppy, but it captures the disparity. I like it
