    Demon

    I promised I won't ever go far, when sunlight burned your skin. I didn't think to ask what's bad about sunlight, before I followed you further in.

    I laid weak and mute in the dark when I wondered why you didn't need the sun. I felt guilty for saving my life, even as I was about to run.

    Out in the clear, overwhelmed with fear, I froze not wanting to look. Brain fog was lifted, tears filled my eyes and my entire body shook...

    I turned around to punish myself, towards the echoing screams of rage. Staring into the face of a demon, struggling against its shadowy cage.
