The Shadows

by whoneedsaname

The door slammed shut.

They were out there.

I was in here. With the shadows.

They laughed at me from outside the door.

The shadows crept towards me.

I shut my eyes Clutched the blankets, Hoped

The shadows advanced, baring their teeth.

I shivered.

They grasped at my candle Smothered it with their hands.

I grabbed it back.

They grinned at me, saying nothing.

I held the candle close, Shielding it

They caught it anyway.

But light triumphed over darkness.

And death triumphed over all.
