She Claims #HorrorHaikuesday For Her Own

To Inspire You:

a light in the dark 2

Claimed For Her Own

Through the howling winds of the frozen night
I can hear her footsteps fall
with a hollow
clunk
clunk
clunk
as she crosses
the creaking boards of the ship’s deck.
Each hollow fall of her heel signaling one less
beat
beat
beat
of my panicked heart.
I had thought,
I had prayed,
I had hoped,
that this close to the edge of the world
surrounded by the seas of oblivion
I would be far enough to be free of her icy touch.
I had thought wrong
I had not prayed hard enough
I had hoped in vain.
For her footfalls have landed just outside my door,
and I know she has come
to claim me at last.
