The Light

The Light by Susan Reed
The Light by Susan Reed


The cave is so deep and dark,

I don’t know where to start.

How do I get out of here?

Faint sound of a screech –

Screeching, Screeching –

What’s that sound over there?


Curiosity will be the death of me,

Loud and splits the ears, what could it be?

Light from its scarlet eyes meet mine –

Slender finger pointing-

Directly to me, he’s pointing –

Deep in my throat, a soft whine.


I try to run, I try to hide – but to no avail,

He catches me with his sharp fingernail.

Hurled to the ground, rolled on my back,

Hand upon my chest, steals my breath –

Struggling to steal air, I can’t breathe –

Eyes closing, I won’t survive this attack.


A powerful voice bounces off the cave walls,

“She belongs to me,” he loudly calls.

Air entering my starving lungs once more,

Gulping, I watch as they fight –

They’re fighting – blow for blow –

This war for a mortal’s soul.


Sapphire light radiates around Him,

Tearing the demon limb from limb.

One final blow, landed in his chest –

Light bursts from the foe –

The light tearing him apart –

Saved from his wrath, truly blessed.


On my knees, I stare upon His face.

Holding out His hand, offering grace.

“Why did You save me from his hate?”

He pulls me up, holding me close –

Hugging me, restoring life’s breath.

“Death at his hand was never your fate.”
