As Night Falls...(II)

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 the 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
The wooden shed,
Will be her temporary home
She fell asleep along with the fear
Buried within her
But there was no peace
She feels vulnerable and exposed
She is sleeping
Yet awake...
