Waiting In The Dark . #writephoto


A long dark doorway 

leading all the way  down

with just trickles and splashes of light

 fear gripped me

Like a man grip on a child

I felt the chills of darkness

After the dark comes the light

but it seems like an endless journey 

through the dark alley

I want to run to safety

But my feet are stubborn

to go the extra miles

With you, I am waiting

In this dark alley

when I wait for you

I am full of darkness.

    That corridor seems longer when you have to wait in darkness…..a dark and thrilling write.
