To Stand Alone

To Stand Alone

A Poem by Sarah

The black sky rumbles;
it's raining ashes,
like snow flakes falling.
The lightning crashes.

Something foul is in the air.

The rumbling turns to footsteps;
the ashes dance.
Closer, closer, closer;
I have no chance.

They are here.

The pounding of the drums;
the beating of my heart.
Only I stand before them;
my enemy from the start.

A hand on my shoulder.

The shaking of my hands stop.
The ashes around me clear.
"You are not alone." A voice says.
A smile; my back up is here.

To fight alone is to die alone.
No one should die alone.

I especially loved the last for stanzas! Except the part about "my back up is here" made the magical moment snap a little. Maybe "my friend is here"? This is beautiful anyways. :D I hope I'll never have to fight/die alone!!!
