Behind You

No walk in the park, no stroll down the lane

As the comfort of light starts to wane


Was that a friendly, smiling face

Ghosts in your head start to race


Right behind you, the shadows fall into place

Behind you, your mind falls prey to the chase


Warm is the breath of the moonlit night

Confidence fails no strength to take flight



Behind you, the darkness lasts way too long

Behind you, you can look back or you’re gone


Behind you, your heartbeat enters a race, and its back in second place

Behind you, the iced hand claws at your face

One dark step behind you
