How he sleeps in the corners of darkness, . . In the welcoming sorts in my mind; Will he sleep until the blood flow halts, And the secrets I've kept must unwind? For he stirs in the bit of what's conscious, Though hiding in what sha'nt awake . . How long will he keep my sorrows comp'ny, How long 'til my walls of stone break? These 'mares have woke me from slumber, And smothered my dreams full of peace; No matter how quiet he sleeps in my head, My heart still refuses release

    Now I'm split, I like the idea that you are possesed by some nightmarish thing, would make a good start to a horror movie ! I suspect though you meant you've haunted but a lost love, either way it's a very powerful poem. Enjoyed.
