The Man in the Shadow

Poetry By: Swoop

An old dream that kept re-occuring

I see him standing there

In the shadows

Always lurking in the darkest corners

But never seeing, who he is…

Why can't I see his face?

Why does he hide from me?

And why do I feel terrified when he's around

Should I be scared?

My blood pumps deeper and darker

As I feel his hands reaching for me

His icy fingers, gripping my heart

Squeezing tightly, till the pain almost makes me faint

He release his grip on me

And I hear him whisper as he returns to the shadows

"One day I will be in control…"
