Alone

It’s quiet here

And dark

There are creatures

Lurking in the shadows

But I have no fear

For the most part

If I leave them be

They’ll do the same

Sometimes they’ll lash out

Drawing blood and tasting my pain

It hurts

But never lethal

I know how to defend myself

When that no longer rings true

They’ll have my soul

I know it

And so do they

But that’s a long way off

I can hold out for another day

Then one more and another

After that, well…

I am a shadow amongst a bright world

They’ll hardly notice when I’m no longer here

A sequel or antithesis to Friendship Reborn.
