The last light

Written by: Brandy Stallard

The bonfire burned so bright 
But darkness crept along its edge 
Utterly alone she stayed as close to the fire as she dared 
Knowing light was the 
Only thing 
Protecting her 
But the fire was going out 
The shadows creeping in 
the darkness had
Staked his claim long ago 
And now he was 
Coming to collect 
The fire almost gone 
She held her breath 
Shadows wrapping around her 
The full moon watching form above as she
Was dragged below 
To the world she was destined for 
She was born to die
