Prompt: Write about your shadow
Tick Tock Tick Tock
The midnight clock
Shadows, twisting, turning
Mine, the most suffocating of them all.
Leaping, dancing, racing across the halls,
Shadow chases, slinking, lurking, waiting,
To afraid to blink,
Shadow wears deception, conjures a facade.
Wake up! Wake up!
Shadow looms over and crashes down
Enveloping, encasing, eating me whole.
Dark Dark Dark, I see no more.
Time stands still,
Chanting, muttering, only echoes here...
Over and over and over and over and over-
Finally I'll meet my end,
Sitting there alone,
Hoping, waiting, sitting, standing,
For someone who will never come.
