Love’s Sacrifice – part 3

Darkness Awaits

Desktop Nexus: Darkness Awaits

Why do you haunt me so?
I banish you from my waking thoughts
only to dream of you in restless sleep.
Your cold blue eyes
see deep into my mind,
my soul.
Your touch sears me
leaving me craving more.
I no longer fear you
and that terrifies me.
The shadow deepens,
we are not alone.
There is another,
a presence with in.
Full of malice,
ill intent.
Who is it?
What does it want from me?
Where have you gone?
Save me
before I am
lost.

This is something that came to me yesterday while driving. I was listening to Phil Collin’s In The Air Tonight. I let it simmer overnight and began writing this morning with that song playing in the background. The poem seems to have taken on a life of its own. This is part three of…I am not sure. What I know is that there is more.
Much more.
