Poem; Just a Trick of the Light?

Poetry By: Mike Stevens

Worry; undefined

I wake up in the dark of night; a distant voice calls to me

from out of the shadows of my mind; warning me

of some unknown evil only one step behind me;

nipping at my heels like a bad memory

Yet, when I stop and turn, nothing and no one

is there to be seen; a vague shadow

stays just out of the light, but I am not sure

I really saw something; like a memory you're

not sure is real; like a voice that you're not sure

you heard, like a face that you just can't recall,

warning you of some undefined trouble

Some sixth sense you cannot explain; or understand;

an unease undefined that you feel in your bones

But you listen to the voice; you trust the feeling

that something is amiss, and that something is real
