A Shadow

From the corner of my eye I see you.

But when I turn my head, you're gone.

I look to see which way you went

Or even which way you came from.

My mind's eye can see you now,

Your image is burnt into me.

It haunts me, follows me

I just can't flee.

Each time I look,

Every person has your face.

I see you everywhere,

And my heart does so race.

I wait for you to phone,

But the phone doesn't ring.

You are in my thoughts.

You have taken over everything.

I wait for you now,

For how long I don't know.

You're there, in the corners of my life.

You are the Shadow.
