Dark Daze

By Katje Kaase

So very dark

Creeping quietly

Fumbling, stumbling

Naked and afraid

Then it began

That chill sliding down

In fear and dread

Like the walking dead

A rush - a dizzy daze

Of swirling disarray

As the door opens wide

Swallowing you inside

Now a bell rings

Your head spins

Life is cruel

Back to school
