the chilling cold creeps through the blankets

the darkness edges around the room, anxois to strike,

but the brightly lit row of candles,

and the crackling fire

keeps it at bay.

you cannot flip a switch,

if the power is down.

you must wait until it comes back on

in order to feel safe from the black stretched out in your own home.
