A web of time not seen
A night of nightmare dreams
And woken in the dark
I ask myself, am I alone?
Or is that shadow
Someone I have known,
Just watching, quiet, and
Hiding, I wait for sleep
To pour over me again.
In dawn's soft half-light
I cannot see,
The things I know
Are reality.
Sweat stings my brow,
I dare not move
In case the dark shadow
Is someone that I know
