Fear is a thrill

A frisson of cold


Like music

Along the vertebrae

Setting our instincts

Into overdrive

Turning mere mortals

Into the wild

Driven for survival

Chasing after

The light

No matter how distant


A candle rests

On a window sill

Set to light the way

Welcoming us

To find a haven

Once more ~ Caroline A. Slee
