Darkness


Completely surrounded
It sucks away my strength yet feeds the fire in my gut
The fire spreads to my chest
My breath is gone
My eyes seem broken
Denied by the force to close
They dart around looking into the void
My worst fears are there
Waiting, watching, poised to strike
The fire reaches my thoughts
It burns away reason and self assurance
But the lights the way for madness
I'm anchored in place being swallowed by the force
Finally the fire ignites fight or flight
My body is propelled through the force
Salvation is just across the room
I flip the switch
The force is gone
Lifted off of me instantly
The fire is out
Reason is back but the message it whispers is not welcome
There was nothing here
The only enemy in this room is you
