night stalker

sun-rays-925221_1920

grey evening air

out of sight
the sun bleeds
across the sky

walk quickly
hurry hurry
before darkness
owns the streets

wind whispers
down
deserted lanes
in corners of the mind

walk fast
do not look back
keep your shoulders straight

creeping
in the shadows
closer
closer

hammering footsteps
echo on the pavement
do not look back

among the bushes
shadows move
slowly taking
human shape

walk fast
do not look back
keep your shoulders straight

closer now
closer than your shadow
fingers near
breath touching

underneath
the streetlight

turn
