The water hits the window

and she sits on the couch.

Wind howls outside

and a candle flickers on the table.


The sounds echo around her,

reverberating in the space.


Everything is illuminated

for an instant,

before it disappears.


Coldness seems to seep

through the windows and walls,

sneaking past her sweater

and chills her to the bones,

as the demons fight in the air

where they can’t be seen.


Their loud cries of rage and pain

and the shining streaks of weapons clashing

makes her feel small.


Their tears and blood splash

against the roof,

slipping down the sides

and collecting around her

like an ocean.
