The Darkness Rose

The Darkness rose
It said “I am powerful”
I said “Yes”
It said “I am more powerful than you”
I said “Yes”
It said “I can envelope you in despair”
I said “Yes”
It said “I can envelope cities in despair”
I said “You can”
It said “I can swallow and envelope entire countries in darkness and despair”
I said “Yes, you can”
It said “I can take this world and enclose it in hate and anger”
I said “Yes, yes you can”
It said “I will take you first”
I lit a candle
