The evening fell beneath the sun
You must login to vote
As shadows drew their cloaks of grey
I did not see what lay ahead
My fate was sealed and done.
The light grew faint and paler still
The shadows danced from lair to lair
The darkness loomed with growing shape
The air was heavy with intent to kill.
I journeyed on my goal in sight
My breath began to gasp, to flag
My blood rushed coursing in my head
I knew not what caused this fright.
the shadows livened and began to wail
As the moon rose round and rosy red.
I looked around in cold wet terror
I was all alone on the darkened trail.
Looking upon the horizon i drew a breath
A ghostly rider transfixed my eye
Hoofbeats flogged my tired feet
As I raced the race against death.
