I Couldn’t Turn On The Light…

Standard

dim_light_bulb_49969I couldn’t turn on the light.

Any light.

The switches either glided up

Or clicked into place

Or the knobs turned

But no matter, no matter

I couldn’t turn on the light.

There was a fear that coursed through me

Standing in the dark

And it wasn’t the first time

That I couldn’t turn on the light

And I yelled out loud to whatever

That stopped the light

That prevented any light to turn on

That pressed the darkness around me

To leave me alone; to stop this.

My hand reached for a light switch…
