The soul has much to say

Unusual Tales: Night light...

It began
with foreplay
Soon a plea
for simplicity
 
Sometimes we don't ask for...much
 
"Keep the light on
Don't ask me why
Just let it be
Besides
 
I want to see you...us
 
Please keep
the light on
It's not the dark I fear
but what lies within
 
Do it for me
 
I don't care
about ambiance
I love you
that should be enough
 
Don't turn them off
 
It will change
everything
We'll never
be the same
 
I'm begging you"...she whispers
 
Passion takes over
Hours pass by
Sleep overtakes them
Old habits die hard
 
"Can't sleep
The light's keeping
me awake"
he mutters to himself
 
Click
 
 

Darkness falls
Unholy sounds
Flesh being torn
Bones snapping
 
Teeth gnashing
 
Soft weeping
in the night
Halted breathing
Cries of "No, no"
 
Click
 
Two souls filled this room
Now...only one remains
He's gone with one exception
A small piece of entrail
 
Click
 
...a wet slurping sound
