A ferocious wave waits at the edge of the door

Licking its lips as the timelord talks

The beam of scintillant hope streams close to me

But the time has come to flush out that light

And succumb to the glutton

Of the caliginosity

My fate waits at the door

Chuckling at my despair

The pedestals of my being grace the earth,

Icicles against the comforting grains of carpet

One second

One moment

One flick

The darkness wins
