Chivs86 Poetry - Shadow Man.

Updated on April 1, 2012

Chivs86 Poetry - Shadow Man.


I'm an opaque silhouette,
sitting on your bed,
while you try to sleep at night-
the creepiest creep you'll find.

I am what make's
your floorboards creak.
The freakiest freak, you'll see,
but i'm hard to believe in -

because most of the time
I'm hiding
only seen in a certain light.

Standing in your door way,
creeping down your hallway.
The thing what stops you thinking
it's all okay.

A darker shade than grey
and when the lights turn on
I fade away.
I am that crazy looking shape.

Alike the shape that follows you around.

I am the paranormal Shadow Man.


Original Idea/ Inspiration.

A couple of days ago, well actually yesterday in fact, I came across the topic of Shadow People after looking for a photo for my poem 'In the Shadows'. The phenomenon I found is one that only really has been brought to light through the increased use of the web, but one that has always been there. So today basically after reading several stories from the website I followed my heart and wrote about one of the most fascinating paranormal topics I have ever read. Who and what are Shadow People?

      Glad to hear you liked it, and sorry I freaked you out, but I must admit I think I've freaked myself out a bit with all this talk of Shadows. Anyway though thank you for your comment I've found what you have to say very encouraging and I hope can keep you interested with my other work.

      Okay you did it, you creeped me out. Don't think this won't cross my mind when I get up to use the bathroom in the dark tonight. Well done.
