In Shadows

By Dr. Agonson

Frightened by the shadows;
All I want to do is dream
but when I close my eyes
There you are waiting patiently.

Startled by every noise
I’m hiding behind the locked and bolted door
Then you come a knocking
and I know

Whatever is deep will drown me
whatever is sure surly isn’t good
the end will come tomorrow
and the night is falling now.

Awakened by the starlight;
enough to see you’re not there
thinking on the morrow
and thinking of the now

It’s time to say goodbye
it was never time to say hello
So let me close my eyes
and let me go
