The Spectre


I watch you when sleeping,

Questioning what is a dream or worse,

And though I have been here for years,

Still you know me not.


With every passing night,

I am roused to you,

From my absinthian death,

To an ever colder defeat.


My purpose is forbidden; unspoken,

A hushed dream of my own,

That dark, eldritch forces keep away,

Save but the pain to remind.


As I watch you breathe, I must then hope,

That one day you will awake,

And remember who you were,

To release or banish me; forever more.
