Watching me with those creepy eyes, i hear noises of a man who cries,
you are back again to startle me, with your demonic hands you cradle me,
ghouls from the past haunt my mind, only a night it takes to rewind,
will this journey last a lifetime? , the aura of fear has me blind.
You were standing close to me as i slept, not yours but my heart which wept,
i shuddered in fear as the nightmare woke me up,
memoirs of my burnt house broke me up,
had i not tried to escape? .....when i felt your breath on my nape.
So long since i have known you, strange i am to the familiar you,
why is it me that you follow? ....with your eyes so hollow,
i know not the reason why....i dare not question and cry,
when you pulled me with such power....only the dead try.
I called the psychic that day, with hair so gray,
said he sees an evil ray,
said he can't help me today, send me blessings so i live to see the sun rays,
his exit led to more fear, wished to leave the place without a tear,
hoped to live without you being near,
this life...i won't share.
Before dusk you made me yours,
you ordered me not to venture outdoors,
i had not known my soul that night, i opened my eyes with all the might,
your force so intense i couldn't fight, soon i lost all my sight,
possessed i was, you killed me tonight, will never open my eyes to a day so bright,
people look at me with so much fright, they know now what happens late at night.
