The night was cold and dark

I was alone

I could hear footsteps fast approaching

Without looking around, I maintained my momentum

I continued along the path

I could hear the footsteps getting closer, closer, closer

I turned around quickly and released a sigh of relief

It was only you. "My dear friend, you startled me,í I said

"Donít be sneaking up on me,Ē I uttered.

The friend laughed

I laughed

We laughed

Then suddenly as friend appeared,

Friendís countenance changed

With a flash, a knife was drawn

And out of the blue it descended

First to my neck

Then my heart

And as I raised my hand to prevent more blows

The knife descended yet again, several times

Everything happened so quickly

I searched in the darkness to obtain a glimpse of your eyes

I saw a hollow with a flickering flame

I gasped though unafraid

For suddenly there was nothingness.

Author's Notes:
