So little time
For sleep or dreams
Even when I wish
They do not come

Is the world out of dreams?

I tread along
This sinuous path
Careful to keep him
Within my sight
As he fades
Into the shadows
Once more

Though I struggle
My dear
You are not lost from me
And never
Are you far

The clouds above dissipate
If only an instant
And for the first time
In a long while
Stars shine through
Hope unheeded
Stares back at me
Perhaps we can purge
The poison from this land
And begin anew
But it will take more
Than The Chosen
Hiding in their towers

No

It will take all mankind
Pure and tainted
To get out from under
This dark cloud

I gaze ahead
But he is gone
Devoured by the night
His scent is fresh
Not entirely lost on me
I follow my nose
Across the plains
Braving the barbed brush
Thorny tangles
Ripping open new wounds

I feel so little
But it matters even less
I try catching up
His slight shimmer
Still out of reach
That wayward spark
Gone from me
Scent of mint
Snared by the wind

In its place
A red eye probes me
Crimson eye of death
Seeking to inscribe its mark
On all it touches

It trails past
Then veers back again
Caught in its sinister sight
It races up my leg
And locks on
My chest explodes
And I fall
Toppled by its wrath
Less by its sting

A shadow looms over me
Tracing red death
Over my brow
Please
I manage

He staggers
Taken aback
Nearly drops his gun
Samantha
He says
Oh no
I choke
Not another
