She sits alone in the dark
Afraid to light her torch
For fear of what she might see
She can hear the creatures crawling
How close they must be
The darkness in her mind all consuming
The beasts won’t let her be reprieved
Then someone steps up with their torches blazing
Attempting to help her be free
The light from their glow is rather daunting
She’s not sure if she can leave
She sees her surroundings
The stranger’s presence commanding
As he turns and starts to lead
She follows faithfully
And they find a better and brighter way to be
The stranger a stranger no more
He helped her find the strength to leave
This Poem is out of my in progress collection “The World Around Me” that will, fingers crossed, be published soon.
