I scream out in the night,
My face hidden behind my hands.
Afraid of what might come,
As time follows the sands.
I feel the room shrink,
The floor disappear,
My face full of terror,
As my fate comes near.
Through the light-less world I fall,
Screaming in fear at it all.
This world of darkness and death,
It stops my heart and steals my breath.
I can feel the shadows grab onto my throat,
Hold me tight this is my fear and it is their doubt.
I struggle in it's grasp and cry out I pain,
As blood fills my eyes and makes me insane.
I look down at my victim.
The shadow's grasp my own.
I smile evilly and tighten the grip,
Killing the girl and crushing her bone.
I watch her fall down into the dark,
Her body becoming smaller as she fell.
To become part of the shadows,
And a part of me as well.
I hear her last cries echo,
Until it takes it last toll,
Leaving me emptiness,
And the girl's soul.
"I hold her soul,
Tis all mine to keep.
Her life was worthless,
Thus it was mine to reap."
