Colossus

NIGHT

I find solace in the frightening night, when the silence is amplified, and I am alone; I can hear my heart beating, and this war drum reminds me that I still breathe. My shadow is cast—hurled against dead buildings. I smile, because for a moment, I am Colossus. I make like a conqueror, and stomp my winter feet—the tantrum ricochets, scaring up phantoms that bellow in the moonlight.

I smile, because for a moment, I am Colossus, untouchable.
