Shadow behind the curtain

There’s a shadow behind the curtain

seen from the corner of my eye

strands of dread forge through me

that my relaxed countenance belie


A silhouette silently stalking

turning up when I least expect

on edge and anxiously waiting

for this apparition to interject.


Don’t abandon me my love

never let this dark spectre loose

to terrorise and conquer me, else

this haunting spirit become my noose.
