a shiver in the night

you shadow me with dissonance
haunting linger
long, slender finger
pointing, trapping the night.
i stop, you stare
bringing a world (a universe) of fright.
hunger, beware,
off in the distance,
closing in, quiet and listen,
the crunching of bones, brittle and light.
watch them glisten
under a blood moon fully aware
of a shiver in the night,
(of a haunting feeling)
a shiver in the night.
