Her Escape?

The dark alleys
serpentine hopeless bends
those hazy pathways
appearing monstrous
in the shadows of the evening skies

And the shades of gray
filing crevice of
any possible brightness,
drawing ghouls,
mimicking ogres,
teasing the humanity in her innocent eyes
and in the subtle emptiness
under the influence of a growing eerie
her heartbeats were the only visible chime
making her presence real
as she tiptoed further
thinking this to be her escape
