A Lone Lurking Figure

Written by: Jay LeBlanc

Embarking this journey through the night 

I stand here, a shadow to hide in 

The want to watch, unveiling yourself to no one 

Imagination swirling, unraveling desires turning 

There's no stop to this spreading attraction 

Now cornered but once insurmountable, 

I face consequence and am held accountable 

Widespread fear beyond comprehension 

Everlasting shadow dwelling demons chanting in tongue 

speaking as if they were one 

I hold my own as I take a breath 

Spiraling into this deep dark depth 

Outside forces with celestial courses 

Awaiting further orders from false prophets 

Unknown to us war will continue to cast shadows 

The slipping sands with their empty hands continue there path with the wind 

For that morning calming mist hovers round 

Prevailing to set the ground 

Stand still, I awake unconsciously 

Grains of stardust in my hand 

Stretching far beyond man 

And remembering a mere broken verse 

Envy, vain, lust, a must 

Words of ruthless rulers that have come before us
