Can't turn back

The distasteful endurance
of light
somber faces
with glaring blank eyes
reflect the candles
on the table
fearfully clutching
each other's hands
a mood of desperation
settled over the room
the murmuring voice
chanting, beckoning
the presence
of the fallen and forgotten
this moment spurred
game, test, dare
didn't bring forth
expected results
instead a scare
and a laugh
the room cold
pounding hearts
and the chants
unknown prankster
cloaked in fear
suddenly appears
the room goes black
there are some things
you can't turn back
