Tortured Shadow (poem)

What tortured shadow waits amid the night

Its sorrow hungers for forgotten soul

It feels a need which nothing can console

And nothing is the source of all its might


Within the razor blackness of its hole

What piercing perils lurk to steal my sight

My wreathing body joins the others’ plight

As grave unknown my nightmares now control


Resolve yourself unto the morning’s glow

Each ray of life grants purpose to the day

The welcome words and friendship of my peers


Through warmth and hugs I felt the evil go

My Joy was such that weeping came our way

And terror rose the blood stains of my tears
