I spent the day in quiet thought, the time passed by like lightning

How could these musings be so fraught, how could they be so frightening?

I tried to clear the darkness, yet it fought its way back in

And that was when I realized, exactly where I’d been

Lost in shadows, I crept about, noticing things encumbered

No longer freeing, always fleeing, my soul, for sure, outnumbered

She traveled quietly, about the town, no one seemed to greet her

Eerily floating above the street, I didn’t want to meet her

Soon she vanished, without a trace, and I felt myself relieved

Still I pondered why she came, and what I, did now, perceive
