I wrote this for Brianna's contest. I'm very happy that I actually (barely) got this done in time. :)

This poem is classified as horror, but I could have made it much creepier. I try and use a little restraint on Booksie and keep things really tame. If I wasn't posting this on the Internet, though, where it could scare younger readers... It would be very, very different. *evil grin* Anyway, enjoy!

Darkness surrounds 
A yellow island suspended 
High in the sky.

Underneath it,
Coyotes send out
Their nightly cries.

The canines are shrouded
In an eerie mist
That sparkles faintly.

Behind the mist
Lies another creature, 
Small and dainty.

Her pale skin has no flaws. 
It glows slightly,
With an unnatural sheen.

Her dark hair is strewn
Around her head
Quite haphazardly.

Her lungs are empty.
They have released
Her final breath.

Upon a mattress
Of soft, green grass,
She rests.

The sun will soon rise,
And all the world will awaken,
Except for her.

Behind the mist
She will stay,
Consumed by eternal slumber.
