"Take solace in the rain, my children. It only means I am near." Another Slender Man-inspired piece.
So foolish of you to have wandered here
A sheep has strayed from the herd
While others lie in their clueless rest
You will not be deterred.
You stagger and search, your eyes on the trees
And as always, I drink my fill
When I decide that I want to be seen
You scream, and then you be still
I'm quite a sight, am I not? Its true
Though looks do not matter too much
Its fun to be what they think isn't real
To shatter their world with a touch.
I've come to finish the deal, my child
Just listen, and don't be alarmed
As long as you stay by my side, and be good
I'll make sure you come to no harm.
You are like me, apart from the rest
So I've come to make you my own
Our domain is a wild and lonely place
But in these woods you're never alone
Thunderheads hover, ominous helpers
The rain lets them know I am here
Children stare out their foggy windows
Waiting for me to appear.
What's this, little one? You want to go home?
This I can never allow
There is no home once you've witnessed me
Sleep easy, and I'll show you how.
Monsters live well in this world, they do
Ones so much more vile than I
So take my hand and we'll leave them behind
No reason to live in a lie.
