The black, haunting shadow formed itself on the wall facing me,

I immediately jumped due to its crude deformity.

I ran and ran but the shadow followed me to the forest,

stalking up and down the trees like a menacing, ugly cyst.

I tripped and my flesh was grated against the suprisingly

hard, gravelly ground; blood leaked from within my knees and I screamed.

I screamed until my lungs propelled from my body, whilst the apt

laughing shadow taunted me, before approaching like a train.

It took form as satan and horns shot up from his unholy head,

a moment later, after a last reflection, I was dead.
