Step Into The Darkness

Living in Shadows

Are you broken?
Are you battered?
Are you shaking?
Are you shattered?

Do you hear the night-time screaming?
Out your name
In the hours when you’re dreaming?
A waiting game

It’s coming
It’s coming
It’s coming
It’s here

Nightmare in Red

Window Red

Nocturnal encounter impending
Involuntary, shadow rendezvous
Garnet eyes peer from your dreams
Haunting your thoughts and soul
Titian tinted visions in ambience
Maroon shades stir from dark places
And your crimson heart thrashes
Repulsion chills your ruby blood
Eternally, perpetually, unbound

Instinctively, your eyes flutter
Never aware, no longer alone

Remnants of a bloodstained echo
Entangled in shreds of soft red vapour
Draped across your scarlet screams
