Darkness Retreated


A lamp flickered on in the house.
The sudden light made the night begone
just as the light came, and the darkness retreated,
My companion felt she needed to grab my arm;
the jolt made my eyes widen.

A lamp flickered off in the house
there was no sound other than my friend’s breathing.
Her heart beating,
    fast,
        scared.

The house, old,
suddenly creaked.

The lamp stayed dark.
my companion still clinging tightly to my arm.
I told her everything was alright,

her grip never loosened.
