Surrounded by Dark

Mary Mathieu

The darkness surrounds me on this Hallows Eve.

The secret within comes to be.

I am a monster in disguise

And I rise amid all the lies.

Along with the others on this day,

I no longer decay, 

But instead plan to stay.

I am part of the curse I planned.

It is one that will plague the land,

The land that will no longer stand.

It is now a world that is completely dark.

One where the monsters lark.

We must hark, 

Hark to that dreadful sound that is all around.

We become drowned, 

Drowned in the dominant darkness.
