It’s All Dark

It’s all dark
Night has descended upon me
forever. All I can hear are
the wails and cries of lost
souls—Lost souls like mine,
and I am afraid of the
dark. I’m drowning in a sea
of confusion. I am helpless
and hopeless. When I look
outside I see night and
inside only Hell. My heart
is encased in an ice block
so cold it burns. I am
banished from light, destined
to live with other
denizens of Hell—in the
black of night; and I am
afraid of the dark.
