He follows you through the day;

Watches silently at night;

Always there- always ready,

To force you into the dark light.

He's always one step ahead;

Waiting until you stumble into his trap.

A gruesome smile covers his face as you fall.

He studies you as you cheat him, planning his next attack.

He is patient and he never gives up.

He'll get you in the end;

He'll get us all- mercy for none.

He is not one to pretend.

But when he gets you; your gone.

He stares you in the face- sadistic eyes gleaming;

The gaps where his eyes should be seem to get deeper.

Then your dead-he got you and he let you die screaming.
