Surrounded By Darkness - Poem by Alydia Compton
Surrounded by darkness
Tombstones all around.
I'm wearing a white dress,
Trying to put my tortured soul to rest.
Death is calling me in,
Calling my name,
Pulling me into the grave.
My body in enveloped in flames.
Blood spills from my wounds.
A new stone sits offset and new.
A hollow tree above,
Swaying and blowing with the chilling wind.
Black roses fill the tombstone's vase.
The girl in the coffin with a dress made of lace.
Chilling darkness all around.
No sound can be heard
Except the rustle of the trees
And the soft blow of the breeze.
I hear a demon scream my name.
Their deathly howls make me cring.
A face runs through my mind,
Flashbacks of time.
Death sinks in
I can't resist.
It engulfs my soul,
Covering it with darkness.
I'm bleeding, dying
Screaming from the pain.
Cutting the soul,
You stuck a dagger in my back
Then I ran it across my flesh.
The life is being taken from me.
I'm dying and no one can save me.
No one cares I'm dead.
So, I walk the shadows
Haunting the people of my past
Until, at last, they breathe their final breath
And sink into the grave.
Why didn't you save me
When you're the only one who could?
Please, save me.
You've taken over me.
