Alert (an acrostic poem)

As she woke up, she wondered what happened

Lights were still out, her spouse still asleep next to her

Everything seemed right, but there was something wrong

Reaching for her phone, she turned on the flashlight

There by the door was… nothing. She had a hard time falling back to sleep

Darkness (an acrostic poem)

Deep underground was where Rick felt most comfortable

As he wandered the tunnels, he swore he could feel the earth’s heartbeat

Reaching for a small glittering rock he dropped his flashlight

Killing the only source of his light

Now he groped along the now unfamiliar tunnels

Each second a moment of terror

Step by step, slowly trying to retrace his steps

Secretly knowing all was lost
