Nemesis


It moves invisibly beside me
I know it is always there
An indented cushion seen
In a seeming empty chair
It gathers courage daily
Sometimes gets so near
I am almost certain that
It is breathing that I hear
Yesterday tracks paralled mine
On empty beachy stretch of sand
I do not know why it is with me
I really do not understand
There is a silence that follows me
A silence that drowns out sound
At times that is the only way
I know it is still around
I wonder sometimes
If it is all in my head
But that doesn't ease my fears
In my lonely empty bed
My room is never dark
Bathed constantly in light
Oh how I hate and loathe
Each long dark night
It is getting up its courage
To attack me or to try
I know when it succeeds
Will be the day I die
I know no one can help me
It really is too late
To defeat my nemesis creature
And save me from my fate
It is coming it is coming
It is feeding on my fear
I see a misty shape forming
Oh my Good Lord it is here………
