Tortured Shadow (poem)

Updated on February 22, 2014

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
