The Silhouette

Somethings watching.

I can’t quite make it out

It’s darkness…

It’s a silhouette

Is it human or animal?

It looks like something in between


It appears everywhere

I’m with friends…it’s there

Watching tv…it’s there

Never close but never too far

I don’t understand why

“What do you want?”

“Why won’t you let me be free?”

The silhouette won’t respond


It’s starting to fade…

It’s getting smaller and smaller

Now that it knows I’m watching…

Now that I’m trying to talk to it

It’s receding back into the shadows


The silhouette is so small now

Barely noticeable!

It’s small enough to ignore

I feel at peace


Peace never lasts long…

It’s growing

I stopped watching it so it grew…

It’s returned
