Isolation - rewrite
She cries out, her voice lost to the darkness that surrounds her. She shouts louder, the shadows in the dark laughing. Here within nowhere, her yells are silently deafening. She reaches out to those shadows, but finds no hands welcoming her. She flings her hands out, desperate like a sparrow, only for eagle's claws to strike her down. In the distance, light appears. She sets forth towards salvation, her feet dragging through the muck of blackness. She struggles and wades; stumbling into the blanket of night, darkness all she can breathe. Enough, she knows. With a final beat she kneels, surrendering to fate, and the darkness quivers its welcome. She closes her eyes, and slowly the dark seems to fade… And oblivion swallows her.
