The Darkness

Her darkness walks in front of her
Yelling at her to fall in line
Reprimanded if her glance turns to the positivity fading in the distance
The darkness wrapping itself around her neck stealing the breath from her lungs

Suffocating she falls to her knees and gives in
Obeying the order of the darkness who has taken care of her soul all her life
Reminded it is never okay to disobey those that have carried her through
Dragging her to her feet, the darkness letting out a ghostly howl that chills her to the spine

The weight of the world feeling heavy and falling back on her shoulders once again
The sick grin that wipes over the darkness’ face as he takes pleasure in her suffering
She fooled herself for so long there was an escape, knowing damn well it was all a lie
That escaping this fate isn’t allowed in her cards of suffering and pain

Every step taken bringing more sorrow and blood to the surface
Her pain now on full display as she walks toward her fate
The one he has been planning since day one
The one he told her was the only escape

The fate so cruel but yet less cruel than staying alive in the world he created
Watching the ones, she cared about fall into his arms
The scenes of their suicides still play in her mind as she takes a step closer to the noose he has secured
The one that takes her to the final fate he has planned

Where he can control her life not only in this realm but in the next as well
An escape will never be possible as this darkness has a stronghold so tight, he will never ever let her be free
As she takes her last breath before the noose breaks her neck
The last thing she hears is that ghostly laugh that has tormented her for so long
