He followed me each night into the darkness of my own creation.
In dreams he would be there watching & waiting.
Each night I would try to out run him going faster and faster.
He walked at a steady pace but no matter how fast I ran he was right there.
Reaching out to grab me.
Sometimes he would grab me and I would suddenly awake.
Other times he would take me off into a deep dark cave.
I could smell the moist wet air and feel the chill of the darkness.
Once I was walking through a neighborhood that seemed very familiar.
Each tree, the colorfully painted houses, the cracks in the sidewalk.
This time I didn't see him after me but I felt his presence & swear heard his breathing.
The farther I walked the more I felt the need to check over my shoulder.
It was starting to get dark and then I remembered, Mr Blue never visited me in the daylight.
That is when I realized I was no longer in a dream.
Mr Blue was standing right in front of me.
