Deep in the shadows something calls out my
reaching through my soul, registering in the brain.
My heart & my thoughts are frozen in place,
as through the shadows I can make out a face.
The expression that lingers on it's twisted head,
did not make me fear, but gave strength instead.
Through me it peered, through my blood & skin,
not seeing me, but the spirit within.
It shrieked & screamed, in fear of it's fate,
expression of panic & no longer hate.
In a blink it was gone, on my shoulder a hand,
I will be with you always, wherever you stand,
for I am the LORD OF THE NIGHT SHADOWS.
