Shadows creep about here

Waiting to swallow me whole

Into ugly midnight nothings

Closer, closer, it comes

 

Whispering, whispering….

Apparitions and dark phantoms

Shifting in and out

in the mists of the mind

 

Hidden in the foreboding illusions

Is the worst kind of killer

A villain of true death

and a murderer of the true Self

 

Oh Mother!

Drive this savage demon away

You are my only weapon

Against that black hell

 

Slowly, slowly, oh mind

You’ll be hungry and starving

For eats – but you’ll get none from me!

Your ugly midnight nothings

Will soon be forbidden here.
