Headlights – Day VI – NaPoWriMo 2014

Oncoming beams
Brilliant and bright
Crash upon the eye
In a blinding flash

In that terrifying moment
Of overpowering depravation
There is no death nor life
There is nothing

My breath quickens and stops
As if my body itself recoils from the moment
Shielding my vision
Yet transfixed upon its brilliance

And then after a fleeting glimpse it is gone
Back into the night from which it pounced
Past me into another world
And there is darkness
