Unseen Calamity


Unseen Calamity

            Deep and dark so they are

            Ground in black

            Crawl in stone of ark

            Consumed in regret they feed on fear


            Count to two, turn your ear

            Reflect the mirror

            Find them wake

            See them appear


            See nothing once but twice

            Turn again to suffice

            The nerve to see

            Be afraid for they watch


            Eye to eye so you meet

            Blind yet clear

            Come find your inner fear

            Only you may you see


            Try hard

            Give it time

            Watch them move at your side

            Mimic you so they do


            May you find them reside

            As you they are

            Cross in worlds you give

            In and out here they come


            Carry them home in your eyes

Unseen Calamity
