The night was cruelly dark, the wind howling
She trudged forth in writhing despair
Hiding away from memories
Running away from the past.
Nightmares lurked in the corners
Ready to pounce up on her
Devilish smiles barred their teeth
Haunting thoughts eating her up.
Tomorrow was dead behind those shadows
Today weeped in never ending sorrows
Hope hid behind those dark alleys
Love was long lost in battle of life.
With nothing but her hollow self
And a heart that bleed from unseen wounds
Her steps took her to the dark horizon
Beyond which, had the unknown in store..
