He leaves

Breathes

Walks out.

Left alone in the dark,

In the cold.

Frozen.

Ice heart,

Colder – like death

And dust.

He lives.

Moves on.

He's happy.

She's happy,

Left alone in the dark,

Colder than ever.

And the darkness,

The never ending darkness,

Creeps closer.

A whisper of shadows, like spiders.

I scream.
