Into Darkness

What if I/you/we were to fall? Your own self, or someone you love?

It happens.

Into darkness, the unknown, with no way back.

‘The lights will go out!’ they say, bulbs shatter.

Then, like a spring breaking under pressure, it all ends.

  1. I really liked the first three lines of this piece especially. There’s a stiltedness, an uncertainty about the circumstances that you capture nicely with the stiltedness of the phrasing. It works well for me.

  2. You surprised me with the way you used “spring”! I was expecting something about springing back up after a fall, but the way you worked it in really stuck to your piece’s tone nicely. Your syntax and sentence structures are also interesting choices that make it visually interesting to read as well.
