Outside, the darkness was pierced by the full moon
Making the fallen leaves look hauntingly surreal
It was then we she heard the sound of something approaching
Nearer it got, the faster it seemed to be moving, the louder it became, the harder her heart beat
Old primal fears rose from the depths of her hindbrain. She began to flee the sound
Undulating ground eventually caught her foot causing her to sprawl to the ground
Still, the sounds were getting closer, faster, louder.
Drawn by the motes dancing in the sunbeam
Uncle Ralph stared happily at their ballet
Suddenly he jumped into the beam to join them
The sneeze that followed cause all his dance partners to flee
On the horizon sits infinity
Challenging my prominence in the universe
Encouraging me to flee back to the finite
And yet here I am, my feet at the very edge
Now should I take the plunge?
