In Shadow

Something is not right, this nagging feeling
Where I am is not where I need to be
A veiled glimpse from time to time
Something, someone, stalking the shadows,
Just out of sight

Turn quickly, sense the presence
It has been there since the beginning
Shy, silently watching, barley perceptible
A newfound boldness of late

I once met him, face to face
While dreaming, in clarity, somehow familiar
Gaunt features constantly in flux
A twisted fun house reflection

“Everything you might have been”
Softly whispered when asked
All the fragments discarded along the way
Unknowingly, breathing we remain.
