You clutch the wall,
Cold and smooth to your touch,
Light sweat smearing the creamy foundation,
Shadows dance around,
This dark hallway closing in,
Step by step towards nothing,
An unknown,
Edging closer and closer,
Your skin tingles,
It runs down your spine,
As you feel those tendrils hug you,
Embraced by that familiar feeling,
That old companion,
Again.
