Salvation

Salvation By Kathleen Lastimosa



When darkness crawls to me
He calls my name
And whispers in my ear,
“Come away with me.”
His arms outstretched
His eyes inviting
His hand holding mine

A step and another
And another and another –
A shout.
I falter and look back
He takes my face
He looks at me
And smiles

A step and another
Into a garden
Of silver, of gold, of diamonds –
A shout.
I falter, I stop
His hand on my back
“I will save you,” he says.

A step and another
Chill air on my face
Cold, cold hands
Grabbing at me
Nails scratching my skin
A step and another
I fall

Salvation
