I am the shadow that dances on walls,
I am the echo of the rain as it falls,
I am the scent of where you have been,
I am the feel of a touch that’s unseen.
I am the essence of all that you dream,
I am your fantasy both wild and extreme,
I am the yearning that scorches your soul,
I am the power that renders you whole.
I am the darkness that drinks from the light,
I am the hunger that burns in the night,
I am the heat that boils in your blood,
I am the breath that drowns in the flood.
I am the stealer of soft fallen tears,
I am the total and sum of your fears,
I am the emptiness that watches and waits,
I am your death, just as nature dictates.
