The Tall Man (Rework #1)

The Tall Man (Rework #1)

A Poem by Kyle J. Lawson

Ever get that feeling your not alone?

From the corners of any room
It lingers about
Slithering from the shadows
When the lights go out

Over your body it looms
 Staring into your dreams
As silent as it is still
Feasting on muffled screams

Lanky and thin
And curious as well
It departs as it arrived
Into the shadows it melts

If the Tall Man stops in
For a meal or for a scare
Hope to never wake up
Or know he was there

I really like this, it gives off that atmospheric feel that you get as a child hearing a about the boogeymen for the first time then not wanting to go to sleep or ever wake up during the night.

Greetings everyone, I'm Kyle. I've recently gotten into writing within the past three years and love doing it. I'm always looking for ways to improve, since I'm nowhere near good or great in any shape.. more..
