From his cosy corner,

Unknown to any,

Prying, waiting for an opportune catch,

Conjuring a menacing guffaw,

At each tremble,

At each conquest,

Immobilising instantly,

Time less to realise,

Time less to retaliate,

Those overpowered,

Recounting tales of apprehension,

Recounting tales of losing comprehension,

Shades of courage fails,

When shades of confusion flourishes,

Spirit of strength,

Making an unheard appeal,

Not to lose heart,

Not to succumb.

Heard but unseen,

Known but unacknowledged,

Casting its net,

In minds of many,


In bright light,

As much as in,

In silhouette of darkness,

Lurks phantom of fear.
