Man In Shadows

Man in shadows in the rain
Face is hidden from your sight
You might wish he would remain
Or on seeing him take flight
He’s like death
And on his breath
A promise sparkles bright

In the rain such shadows cast
Images your mind reveals
Prisoners held against the mast
You can tell them how it feels
Promise made
Is yet betrayed
With every breath he steals

Man in shadows hides his smile
Softest voice caress your ears
He’s been waiting quite a while
Just to draw you ever near
He’s a curse
And what is worse
The one you never feared
