Everything is Dark

Everything is Dark

 

I stare out through my window

I feel numb and I can’t move

Am I scared?

 

Boom! A flash of light

a gun is firing, I don’t flinch

Why can’t I look away?

 

His eyes look sad

My hands are cold

Do I know him?

 

He approaches me

My knees give, thud

Am I bleeding?

 

Pain, I feel it

I look down, blood

Am I dying?

 

I look up at him, he’s crying

I don’t hurt anymore
