The moon sprayed quivering rainbows across the sky,
But the air was still and it carried with it a frightening feeling,
The night was cold and filled with whispering sounds,
As if it knew her dark secret… as if it saw right through her!
It was yet another unnerving episode of her life before her own eyes,
She felt like an actor as if she was playing a role in a big production,
And as blackness started to form beyond the moon and the stars,
She felt a frightened sweat trickle down her shivering face
The alarm she felt escalated into deep emotional fear,
How could the heavens form cahoots against her defenseless self?
Who would save her from this dreading feeling?
The dreading feeling that perhaps death was searching to cut her down!
She suddenly realized that this long distilled fear would turn lethal,
She did not want to plunge herself into the grasping greedy hands of darkness,
For there are many things that she still had to do…had to see,
She struggled to contain her racing heart,
Her inner voice and free spirit is what kept her alive,
Both defenses may be dishonored by another but can never be abased by her dark secret
