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
