There is only darkness and no light.
There is no daytime and only night.
No sleep is possible, can’t close my eyes.
That howling wind, I do despise.
The lightning strikes and the thunder rolls.
The rain pours down before the rooster crows.
The sun won’t rise. I’m all alone.
As I lie there crying, I hear a moan.
“Who could it be and where?” I ask.
Then I slowly rise to do my task.
I slightly jump when the floorboards creak.
I try the light, feeling oh so meek.
It flickers once and then goes out.
My throat feels tight as I try to shout.
No words escape my frightened lips,
As someone holds me in their grip.
My last hope seems to slip away.
As though it were a fading day.
And now there’s nothing left to do.
but wait to see if the nightmare is true.
