Shadow

Last night I roused in the dark of night

The room was dim with clock face light.

In my sleep befuddled crawl

I saw my imprint on the wall.

 

I smiled to see I looked so tall,

The figure held me in its thrall,

My mind and feet seemed paralysed,

This can’t be me I realised.

 

Then as I crept across the room

The air felt cold with heavy doom,

I moved in fear to get away –

The shadow on the wall did stay.
