Out From the Shadows.

Sunset. Dive below
the horizon,
fading from twilight
to darkness.

Infinity exposed,
sea of stars twinkling
above as the mysterious,
terrifying and captivating lurk,

prowling, ready to pounce
on me, out
from the shadows to sink
eager claws

and thirsty fangs
into me, rip
my illusions
of courage
to shreds

under
the reflecting light
of our waxing,
waning
Lady Luna.

Sleeping
with the lights
on, one bloodshot
eye open,

curtains drawn,
door locked and bolted.

No hope to dodge or circumvent
for sure, though I can ensure,
at the very least,

to the best of my capability
that I will see
what’s coming.
