Darkness falls

 Serpent Please!
"Lay quietly! Wipe your tears, their is so much more for you to fear." 

Vengeance without a face.
His awful sent I can now taste.

Darkness falls within these walls.
"No one here to hear your call!" 

I cry as I stand still. 
I am quiet. I am. I am but a faint whimper. Can he hear me? 

I feel you all around me.
I am captured, unable to break free.

Sorrow beating within these vains, these cords that keep me restrained. 

This serpent I can not see. 
I feel your presence. I can not leave.

Serpent PLEASE! 

Captured, unable to break free, you summon me to my knees.

Seeking light from this darkness, unable to.. breaaa-th.

I feel defeated!

I am frail
I am tired.
I am weak.
I am fearing the unknown.

I am
I am
I am captured!

    Very nice. It is funny how darkness casts so many allusions and usually of fear never comfort. If we could only override fear and remember as It cannot be seen by us. Chances we cannot be seen by It. Unless we start to breathe heavy ,or sweat. Hearing and smell will give us away.
