In The Distance

It waits silently
off in the distance
what it waits for
it does not know

It hopes there will be pain
it loves pain
as long as it belongs
to someone else

it doesn’t know
what it is
nor does it care
it just is

it waits for those who worry
to fall asleep
then it does its job

there will be no sleep
for the worriers tonight
