October is coming. . .



   October is mere hours away.  Before long the sun will fade from the sky;  fog will fill the corners;  shadows will move next to all we know; and the world will become an unread Bradbury tale; and my mood will darken, my soul will turn sullen and I will. . .WRITE.  I am a horror writer, and this is my month to get back where I am supposed to be.  This is what I do, I will strive to not disappoint.

DARKNESS LOOMS

"Darkness Looms"

by

James Patrick Lockett



Darkness looms,

an ever increasing pitch

that threatens to envelope

my mind, my heart, my soul.



Deeper,

falling deeper into that

cavernous void;

a step further into the wood

that shields my surroundings

from ever light.


I hold my breath,

as if it were the last thing I own,

my last link to the light,

as wings wrap themselves around my eyes.

Not the wings of angels,

they are the darkness.


Tight, they close off all that I know.

I reach out for some unknown gate,

touching the latch, I release my last

breath,

and give in to the void,
