Shadows that flit
Quickly out of sight
Noises: my own heartbeat
Or a spirit taking flight?
Eating away, inside my head
Poisonous acid spawns creatures
Apparitions, that surround my bed
The small of my back tingles
My soul trembles with dread
Are these just nightmares?
No, surely not
Even imagination, wild and crazy
In front of this, would fall short.
Whispers in voices
Darker than the far side of the Moon
They call out, they scream my name
From inside the walls of my room
The darkness envelopes me,
Even my angels leave my side
I can't even scream; now it is
My ghosts who will decide
What my memories punish me with,
What will be the fate of Pride.
