#outloud Paula J Horton – Untitled


Darkness beckons

And I run for the light

I try to stay there

Then, suddenly, night


My eyes closed to stop it seeping in

I have to wait for the morning light to breach my lids

To feel safe

To try again to run towards the light


I run, I run hard and feel

the darkness snapping at my heels

But I’ll keep running until the darkness tires

And it will
