Sleeping In The Light - Poem by James Davies

Darkness is creeping in
The light is fading
Sea of dirt and ammunitions
Crowding me
Hope of rescue, Gone
Swallowed in to the abyss

Please, someone, help me
I, I can’t feel my legs
The night is closing in on me
What, what’s happening to me?
I’m, I’m all alone
I don’t want to fall into the abyss
I, I shouldn’t be here

This isn’t my place
Oh, oh no. Not now. Please not now
I don’t want to lose
I don’t want to be here, not here
I want to go home to my mum
I’m only 13, don’t kill me please
No, no, no someone help me

The monster in the mist is coming for me.
