While you were sleeping.

I watched you while you were sleeping,
you looked so peaceful there.

I gently kissed your forehead
and ran my fingers through your hair.

Still, you did not notice me
or feel me standing there.

When you woke in the middle of the night
to get a drink of water inside.

Still, even then I was watching
from the shadows where I chose to hide.

Even as you lay down to sleep,
beneath the covers, so snug inside.

Unaware of the closing darkness,
you sleep alone in your bed.

Ignorant of the evil that surrounds you,
sweet dreams play on in your head.

My axe in the air, sharply gleaming.
Soon my dear, soon you'll be dead.
