I see you every evening, when I close the light

Darkness in my doorway, lurking in the night

What is it you’ve come for, what is it you need?

You don’t answer, but my sleep, you do impede

I try to close my eyes a bit, yet, I can still see

Your shadow lurking in the night, making fun of me

But I can’t hear your laughter, I can’t hear your voice

I try to block you out of my mind, as if I have a choice

You can leave now, go on, and just let me go to sleep

So I can dream of shadows…

…that around my bedroom, creep
