I see

Nothing

Or do I?

I sense

Something

But what?

I look

There's nothing

Wait!

There's something

Maybe…

Maybe not

Am I crazy?

No…maybe

I don't know

There!

In the shadows

There's something

I move

Closer

And closer

Aha!

Wait!

There's nothing

I think

I must

Be crazy

Wait!

There!

Can you see?

That face

Hiding

In shadows

Stop!

Don't go

Please!

I draw

Closer

And closer

Yes!

You're there

I'm sane

No!

Wait!

You're gone

Stop!

Come back!

Please!

Shadows

They're

Everywhere

They're getting

Closer

And closer

I run

Away

Far away

Again!

I see

You're here

But…

Your face

What's wrong?

You hide

From me

But why?

No!

Stop!

Don't go

Come

Yes

That's it

Come

This way

Come

Now

I can

Finally see

Why you hide

In shadows

In your home

Your face…

Scarred

But why?

Punished?

For what?

Tell me!

I draw closer

To you

Moving slowly

Can I?

May I?

Touch?

Does it

Or does it not

Hurt?

Your eyes

Your look

So lost

Am I

Wrong?

Maybe

Am I

Right?

Maybe

Could it be?

Your eyes

So Dark

Full of hate

And I

Think…

Maybe

I see…

No!

Impossible

But …

There's something

In there…

In your eyes

It's absurd

I am…

Confused

Lost

Please!

Stay!

Don't go

Wait!

Gone

Again

Unnoticed

Like

A phantom

I'm crazy

I'm sure

But…

I saw

The scars

The eyes

I touched

Your face

Your scars

But…

Again

You're gone

Shadows

They're

Everywhere

I'm scared

They're Closer

And closer

Closing in

No way out

Slowly

Wait!

You're there

Again

Your face

Your eyes

You're smiling

Now

I feel…

Terror

Who are you?

Where

Do you go?

Again!

You're

Gone!

My mind

It hurts

It's going to burst

I'm crazy

I'm sure

Or maybe

I'm sane

Maybe

You are real

But tell me

Why

Must you go?

Where

Do you go?

Tell me!

Please!

Come back!

Please…

I know

You can see

My struggle

The fight

The turmoil

In my head

Am I

Sane?

Maybe

Am I

Crazy?

Maybe

I can't see

You're gone

Again!

But…

I think…

Maybe…

I sense

Something

Behind me

I turn

Nothing!

I'm crazy!

Again

I turn

I'm sane!

Your shadow!

It's you

Again

You walk

Closer

And closer

Your eyes

Your smile

They've changed

You have…

Changed

Who are you?

You come

Closer

To me

My hand

Inches

Closer

My fingers

Running over

Your scars

They're soft

Your eyes

They close

You've missed

The touch

Of another

Your hand

Reaches

For mine

You hold it

Against

Your scars

You smile

Softly

Sweetly

You're taking

Me away

To your home

The Shadows

They are…

Closing

Around

You and I

Like a cloak

But…

It gets

Colder

Darker

As we go

Deeper

Within

Your home;

The Shadows…
