Longest Night - By: Klarissa Coleen Vera

I've wandered all alone

In this lonely place people call home

Made with bricks and stone,

It's voice in a melancholic tone.

Thoughts fill my head,

"The darkness should be colored,"

"A brutal red." it said.

Oh, how I desire for it to stop

When the rain still continues to drop

Somehow, keeps me sane

As the sound enters my poisoned brain

"Should it always be like this?"

I asked myself in the mirror,

My eyes, deeper than the abyss

Digging up all kinds of horror.

I hope the sun scorches me tomorrow,

I'm sure that I'd be glad I'll be grateful for the time I had

And I close my eyes to greet another nightmare

Opening my eyes tomorrow to a world that isn't fair.
