A Spark - Poem by Elizabeth Shield

The cavernous maw of shadows twirled around me
And in the dark my lonely candle flickered
Twisting softly in the deafening night
All the demons stayed at bay
My work incased in a radius of safety
All silent for the scratching of my pen
The angry howls of looming darkness
Fell upon my tender ears

In fear I had a strange deficiency
And that's what made the end of me, perhaps
When I stepped out to breathe
My disbelief was ended
And I was apprehended by shadows
A light snuffed out by night

I Had feared not the shadows for the light
But when alone fell quickly to the gloom
Died to the dark
Please, save me soon
I only need a spark
