Shadow


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,

Nothing breathes,

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.
