Oranges and lemons

Do not tempt the unknown.
The mind cannot survive.
Of limits that cannot be crossed.
Darkness of no return.

It comes out in the dark.
Never in the light.
It whispers. It seduces.
No where to run or hide.

She felt the cold wind.
Then falling into darkness.
Something brushed against her.
Wet and slimy; caressing.

She was choking on panic.
Screaming in her mind.
Pleading. Whimpering.
Sinking into darkness.

Awaking in swirling fog.
Mad laughter; laughing.
A nursery rhyme looping.
Oranges and lemons……
