The idea for this came from something a "talking" cat said in a YouTube video.

Sara L. Russell 21:02 15/08/2007

I stand in the space
 between darkness and light,
between thinking and doing
 emboldened by hate;
I lurk in the place
 where the soul perceives fright,
a dread demon, persuing
 down hallways of fate.

I see you alone
 with your frozen-wide stare
caught in the thin glow
 of one candle flame;
mere flesh and bone
 and with fright-bristled hair...
I wait at your window,
 I whisper your name.

Scary poem told from the stalker's point of view. It works well and conjures up images from my own nightmares I carred back from Vietnam of imagined eyes out there in the dark watching--always watching and waiting. I imagine these types of night demons feel powerful as they stand in the dark looking into lit rooms thinking that these people are helpless--not knowing that might not be the case.

The dark side has its beauty as well. Superb poetry.
