Shadow of My Life

There’s something out there
I don’t know what
But it’s coming after me
I can’t stop the thoughts, the memories I recall
I’m afraid
I wake up in the night listening to the voices
The fear in me doesn’t stop
It won’t stop till it consumes my whole being
What’s wrong with me?
Am I paranoid?
My heart is pounding with every second
I see images of my past
I relive it again and again
My blood pulsing through my veins
My heart throbbing from the inside out
What’s happening?
I see it
My shadow
