( Check out my Day Twenty Nine prompt here: https://marylandpoetblog.wordpress.com/2016/10/30/ocpowrimo-day-twenty-nine-prompt-upside-down/)
Walking through the darkening night
Going off dreams
Not what it seems
Simplicity becomes a fright
When you cannot see your way home
When paths are gone
When paths are long
When you’re finding yourself alone
