He will haunt you

Sliding from

under your feet

Finding you

Living in between corners

You a

treat to eat

He slips in when you

least expect it

Terrifying you

With no surrender

Scaring at will

You will have

no slumber

He lives in your dreams

Hides in your thoughts

Creeping in gently

From beyond

reality

None to ration

Horrors on your mind

Sent he

The Boogeyman

May be

a reality

He might be

your neighbor

Down the street

He could be

that guy

That breaks

your heart

The one

You never

wanna meet

Beware of

the boogeyman

He can destroy

your mind

Watch out

always

Never be blind

      Excellent symbolism as I relate this to some people I used to know.

      I always take great enjoyment when reading your wide-ranging talent.
