Cypress House

by Jeremy Wilson

The air was thick, oppressing me as I went on, the light fleeing from behind the cypress trees that depressed and overtook the scenery as I delved deeper down the uninhabited road. Suddenly, just as the forest was swallowed in a cool darkness belying the humidity, a sliver of dying light rallied and illuminated a, until this point, hidden house. I had not been aware of it as I passed excepting some vague idea of its shape and presence, as if it was meaning to hide. Trying to make sense of the areas in shadow was like trying to make sense of something sensed out of the corner of one’s eye. Shapes were undefined, but it was grand in its decrepitude, almost melding into the thick trees and unknown growth surrounding it. A porch, balcony and utilitarian concrete stairs jutted out from the gloom, flooded with golden light. At the same moment the house was revealed, a light on the second floor winked on like an eye springing open. I could feel the house watching me in the fading light, an intruder on it’s concealment.
