Death's Shadow Poems
Light the flame,
keep the darkness at bay.
Beware the night,
take heed of those afraid of light.
Worse than monsters under the bed,
worse than monsters hiding in the closet.
Behind you, they silently creep,
waiting for you to sleep.
they feed off fear.
Pain is what they intend to induce,
whenever they are set loose.
Bars can't stop them,
chains won't hold them.
They prey on those who still have innocence,
making use of their ignorance.
Victims are left bleeding and broken,
never to be the same again.
Every breath ...
We sit upon the cool grass,
Not saying a word,
As the sun slowly dips behind the trees.
The sky is painted with hues of red and pink,
As I stifle a yawn,
Wanting to stay out till the very end.
Tonight is special,
Because the rules were broken,
And sunsets are sacred,
Because they were ours.
