Shadows of the Night by Jacqueline Nash

I wasn’t sure which category of poem to put this one and have decided to put it into the Supernatural Poems Archive as it is a little creepy. It is especially creepy for those of you who are afraid of the dark or of shadows. Please feel free to make a comment below the poem where it says Leave a Comment. I would love to read your comments on this poem and also any comments about your fears of the dark or shadows if you have them.

Shadows of the Night

Black dark shadows of the night,
across the sleeping earth they creep,
slithering and crawling, they obscure the light,
as they try to steal your soul to keep.

The shadows spread, begin to mingle,
becoming ever stronger in their evil intent,
maliciously seeking souls from the vulnerable,
they journey on and will not relent.

The silvery moon, she grants them life
and gives the shadows their umbras guise,
so pray they don’t find you, to cause you strife,
if they do, beware, do not open your eyes.

When the black velvet night grows old,
dying; as the early morning begins to dawn,
the shadows retreat from where they evolved
as the sun rises and a new day is born. ©
