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.”
