The Dark Night

The evil in the darkness crept upon me
like a haunted soul
it's swirling stench entrenched itself in my veins
like a cauldron bubbling filled with shadows
that covet my throat with its knife's edge 
to let my blood drip onto the floor of eternity
without conscience, leaving a barren space
growing darker as death comes towards 
to blackened an already black night
where my skin crawls exposed to uncertainty
to breathe another breath in a nightmare 
where there is no escape, finding me minuscule
as to not be worthy of its evil wrath
it was there I found peace for my fate

Congratulations, Frederic, on winning the top spot in Russell's contest. I can so relate to this one, when the memories come, the anger follows, what must we do to help the heart forget? Wonderfully written. Love and hugs, Catie :)
