Black as the Abyss
Avery, Age 12, Doylestown, PA
                      All shadows blend in, disappear
They are stalking, waiting to show again
Surrounded by darkness

Silence pierces the air
A gloomy cloud that won’t blow away
Fear swelling, spilling over the edge
You’re surrounded by darkness

Insecurity— a deadly feeling
Makes you hallucinate and fantasize
A bottomless pit of everlasting fire
One you can never escape
Always surrounded by darkness

But wait— a growing flicker
Of red, orange and dolphin-blue
A glimmer of light, a spark of hope
Surrounded by darkness
