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…”

Don't we all fear the things lurking in the shadows. Good poem, it works well on different levels.

Awesome! Aren't we all dreading that moment when we completely lose control?
