Step by step you walk through the door

And into the impenetrable dark

Your lantern illuminates little more

Than a patch of wall, a stretch of floor

Impressions only, no clear view

Of where you are

The noise of your footsteps is muffled

They seem so loud with no other sound

But your shallow, fearful breathing

Where are you? How did you get here?

How long have you been here?

Keep walking, step by step

On into the dark

There’s no going back

No exit
