i am hunted
around dark corners
down endless hallways
no light shining
inside or out

every night
the darkness falls
around me in sleep
in dreamways
i am alone

the hunter looms
seven feet tall
a broad knife in hand
following me
in the night

only you can save me
only if you’re with me
only I am alone
only long hallways stretch
only out before me

(I’ve had this dream every night while waiting for a doctor to tell us he’s okay. Why do they torture us?)
