Shadows


5. Tonight I lay awake and see,
All that the night brings,
It doesn’t last long, I need to pee,
But the shadows form the scariest of things.
It’s just my imagination, I say,
There’s no need to raise alarm,
However the shadows in their terrifying array,
Look as though they might bring me harm.
16. Tonight I walk homeward and see,
All that the night brings,
Though with my younger self I must agree,
The shadows look prone to violent things.
It’s just my imagination, I say,
But it still arouses some alarm,
As I walk faster to the house in which I stay,
Afraid of the shadows that might bring me harm.
22. Tonight I’m just barely alive to see,
All that the night brings,
For in the woods a shadow pinned me against a tree,
And to me it did unspeakable things.
I wish this was just my imagination, I say,
I should have listened to that first faint alarm,
At five I guess I was right in a way,
It was the shadows after all that brought me harm.
