Lurking in Shadows by Nomar Knight

Lurking in Shadows   

By Nomar Knight 

My vision shifts to the darkness 
Wondering if it happened 
Did I see movement 
A lump forms in my throat 

I coax my frozen legs 
Toward uncertainty 
Imagining the monster 
Hiding in the shade 

Silence breaks 
For deep breaths pant 
Corroded lungs chime 
A menacing chant 

Pushed by fear 
I reach into the night 
Praying emptiness roams 
But something pulls me 

Embraced by evil 
Hateful eyes stare back 
Death stands near 
Lurking in shadows 

Recognition screams 
I know you 
Ebony pools reflect 
The shadow is me
