Someone loomed from nowhere—
A better glimpse failed her—
Her breath was heavy
In the dark, she heard a voice—
calling her name—
She replied it with a question—
“Who is it?”
There was but silence—
A light brush of cold air on her skin
suddenly chilled her bone
and gave a shiver to her spine.
She tried to open the door
upon her path but failed —
When she turned to walk away...
a brisk wind blew the door wide open.
Revealing bright light in the dark—
floating and dancing in space—
then it ascended
into thin air!
—into the unknown—
and never to be seen again.
