Different, hiding,
Scared of light.
No one’s watching,
Nothing’s right.
Always running,
No more time.
Never ending
Upward climb.

Different creature,
Never sleeps.
Always searching,
Dry eyes weep.
Shadowed future,
Haunting past,
Clouds obscure,
Love never lasts.

Different, crawling,
Piece of night.
Endless falling,
Stand and fight.
So much distance,
Can’t go home.
Eyes of vengeance,
Heart of stone.

For anyone who's watched Lord of the Rings, you know Gollum as a complex character. I tried to write a poem capturing this... hopefully I came close.
