The Shadow


Who are you that controls my dreams
That stalks my realities?
The hooded figure who goes before he is there
The silhoutte with reptiles and beasts for pets

Are you a messenger of my head?
Sending me warning from the grave, the dead
You show me pictures of apocolypse
And make me feel like there is something missed

Who are you that stalks my night
That is always there to give me fright
How do I make you disappear
To leave me alone and disperse my fear

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
