'Shadows Of Night's Dark' - Poem by Ovi Odiete

Shadows of the Night dark;
A bane or a misery untold?
Another pain; Another bondage
An eerie howling sound
Shadows of a fearful call,
A time from the witching hour;
Mysteries untold of miseries unveiled,
A patch of darkness above the falling sky

Shadows of night's deep cry;
A strong scent of power
A great and glorious fall
As the stars shine forth
Shadows are our biggest fear,
They talk; they stalk,
They even tell stories
Of the things unseen, unknown

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Fear of the dark. Fear of shadows, screams in
the night. These are deep-seated fears. And
there are reasons for this. Man is a visual
creature and has his least power in the dark.
