Dark ~ Nishka Ramkhelawan

Today

the sky painted the landscape

in shades of black.



The sun was a candle

simply quenched out

by the coming darkness.



The illumination disappeared

and gave the stars

a chance to shimmer.



Yet

we all remained under

a blanket of blackness

that consumed as all.



Thousands of nightmares,

 those that begin happy

 and gain your faith,

 but end in screeching.



The dark, soundless trees

stand sentry above the dimness

 that darts through the vapour.


A precinct of horror.
