Alone

She turned

Looked back

Down the alleyway

The faint

Light of the sunset

Still clung to the walls

But the glance

did nothing more

Than confirm

Her fears

The shadow

Chased away the light

Endless

She said a curse

Loud 

But not loud enough

As the looming darkness

Filled the alley 

Completely

Utterly

Lost

alone.
