Darkness

i fear the darkness
and the sorrows, emptiness with it
the pain i feel
greater than any burden
the melancholic silence
that ties me
leaving deep marks
the fear of the unseen
that crawls deep within my skin
but what do i really fear?
the darkness that blinds me
or the mystery hiding beneath
for now i cannot answer
but i must not come any nearer
or suffer being the captive of the unseen

Almost Dead

Daily Prompt: Close Call

alone i was in the
long, silent, ominous road
muster all courage to walk through
out of the blue i heard
scratching boots on earth
taking a curious look, i saw
dagger pointed at me
examine the face behind the mask
alone i was again
dagger bloody in my hand
