As Night Falls...

As night falls,
Hesitantly taking each step
She looks around
Her heart thumping,
Working incoherently
With her inner peace
Silence
Is her best friend
But darkness
Weakens her strength
Along with sounds of crickets
For music
Fear became her companion
The coldness of the air
Sends shivers down her spine
She tightened her grip on her side bag
Her nails dug into the depth of the leather skin
Leaving behind imprints
She quickened her steps
Almost running now
She arrived at her destination
And reached for the door
Before she could do anything
The door magically unlocks itself
"Welcome home,honey"
She took one more step
A new feeling floods through her
Safety it is
And all the fear she left behind the closed doors...
