The Darkness

paw prints in my foot steps
the dark shadow skulks nearby
lingering on the periphery
posed and ready to pounce
my dark thoughts its only sustenance
hungrily it stalks its prey
glinting eyes stare unwavering
relentlessly grinding me ever down
until I open the door defeated
and let the black dog in
