Ruin by Rose Mbowa

August 21, 2012

Up on a hill it stood immovable

Dark and gloomy in the dusk

a heavy silence hung in the air

But on she walked

A cricket whispered breaking the silence

lightning up her path

then suddenly is stopped

as if suppressed by a heavy load

still on she moved

every move drew her nearer

every move gravitated towards the gloom

giant trees,heavy and dark before her rose

guards on duty ,erect in the dark

through them she pushed

With eyes closed,arms outstretched

she groped in an envelope of black

the air grew dense and doomed

her head drummed faster and faster

to the door she stopped

with trembling hands,she pushed

a squeal pierced the air

flashes blinded her sight

and down she descended with a blow

on the grim,rude stone
