Shadows of the Night – Jacqueline Nash
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. ©
