In the shadows

In the shadows lurks a beast, aching,
It waits amidst your garden's embrace,
Slyly seeking to claim your essence,
Flee, if you dare, but it ensnares,
Can't you sense its claws, relentless?
Chase after the fleeting light,
Keep on running, don't look back,
They pursue you, relentless hounds,
Dash for the sun, oh wanderer bold,
Once more branded an outlaw,
Time bends, Superman, in fleeting embrace,
He lingers in the realm of make-believe,
Where reality twists and bends,
Your world oscillates, night to day,
In the furnace of dreams, it fades away,
Lost in the azure expanse, untamed.
