Footsteps in the Dark

Footsteps in the Dark

Footsteps in the dark,

Sounding my retreat.

Footsteps in the dark,

Keeping at my feet.

Darkness calls,

Yet I ignore it.

The daylight comes,

Yet I cower from it.

Footsteps in the dark,

So soft and yet so loud…

Footsteps in the dark…

These footsteps…

They are my own.
