In the Shadows

Written by: Christopher Wellbelove

You sleep in shadows
Lie in wait 
Felt but unseen
Waiting for the moment
Upon another victim
You will creep

You forage in desperation
Grow with the moon and all it holds
Nourished by every searching tear 
Mightier in the depth of lonely fear

Exhaustion is your ally
Where you continue to drain
You kill all hope around
Because you fear it knows your name

You scar all you touch
Sometimes survived 
But never escaped
As you drown your victim in darkness
You keep all others away

Those who've met you
Never forget you 
And though they know
Where you prey
Sometimes to the shadows
They cannot help but stray
