the man who follows me in the shadows

I've never known a greater fear
than the darkness that keeps growing near
I hear his voice in the shadows
and know he came from the gallows

the gallows where my mother had died
the gallows where my father had cried
the gallows where I lost my joy
the gallows where they lost their boy

I've heard his voice at night
and I've heard his voice in the light
it gets lonely, but then he speaks
and suddenly, fear sparks

I wish he would leave me alone....

hey, here's another one, my friend special k told me to write a poem about sorry. the only thing she said was about sorry and nothing else haha
anyways here it is

i feel sorry
a strange, unusual sort of sorry
i feel sorry for someone that never got that opportunity
an opportunity i threw away
i could feel sorry
possibly for something i did
or something in its entity of its whole
not even regarding
not even comprehending
their capability
to give birth to a perpetual chain of guilt

i'm sorry

red light

welcome to my first show
this will be good, I know
yes, this is my first show
so let's give it a go!

the lights shine bright
red, blue, green, white
but then it suddenly turns to night
oh, what a horrible fright

my guests are gone, none to be seen
was my show that bad, was it me, was I mean?
the lights are broken, except one beam
and I see him again, against the wall he lean

he stands there, in the red light
and reminds me about that one fight
the fight that took all living and made them dead
he said it was all my fault, under the light of red

ask and ye shall receive, @uurcool


so my first show was a bust
and I've lost your trust
and with the rain soon to come,
the metal will surly rust

but as I said before
I don't know what went wrong
all my guests left me
but I knew they'd leave all along

the man in the red light,
despite being far from me,
speak words that sound so right
but the clown tells me that he lies

the only clown on my show's name is frown
and he wears a red tie
his hair is red and his eyes are brown
and he drives all around town

he tells me not to listen to the man in the light
he says that the guests left because of him
because he gave them "such a fright"
I don't believe a word he says, though I know he's right

after he spoke, he gave me a hug
it felt so strange
then he screamed like he got stung by a bug
and disappeared into the dark

the man in the red light has him
I'll never get him back
this is all my fault, I distracted him
and now, a friend I lack
