When Darkness Falls - Poem by Aram Stefanian
''When darkness falls, we are reborn.
Our dream since the fall of man...''
First, Tim and Mary heard them whisper, ''Wake up and follow us.''
Then the scared kids went downstairs and saw dim shadows outside.
As the front door opened, they were drawn into a dark shapeless mass
That seemed like a biting wind howling, ''We'll take you for a ride.''
Nocturnal demons carried them as far as the old cemetery:
The kids stood before two open graves, paralyzed with fear.
Tim fainted, and his sister heard, ''Don't freak out, Mary! ''
She turned back and saw a sad marble angel shedding a tear.
A bright light flashed, fading the demons out of the picture.
''So you're real? '' she said, ''Please save us, I hate those worms.''
And the skywatchers saw a cloud turn into a feathered creature
Flying high to heaven, with two sleeping kids in the arms.
