The Light Fades

Light fades,
the sun’s optimism
giving way to darkness’ shadows
my eyes are drawn to hidden placesdarkspaces
warily seeking the source of this creeping sensation
what beasts inhabit crevices, what creatures lurk
and are these merely trees that loom over me

or the incarnation of trapped souls
taunting my passage?
