Darkness Surrounds

I see you in the darkness,

hiding in the shadows

seeking out a kill

to make your name.

I feel you reaching out,

trying to pull me back,

keep me in these haunted halls

that seek someone to blame.

        Welcome back. Delighted to see your latest offering does not disappoint the darkness within.
        The last two lines particularly are very beautiful.
