 ramblings and things

jack o' shadows


they call him jack o' shadows
and he's never ever seen
it's only when he's gone
you know that he's been

he moves through the darkness
never in full daylight
comes into his own
only after midnight

he's the thing that makes you shiver
as though in your tomb
as he passes you through
huddled in your room

making every night's long dark hour
seem double length
sapping at your soul
sapping at your strength

constantly patrolling making his choice
when to feel his icy breath
is the short slide into a
quick and sudden death

he's the reaper of the cosmos
only made whole
when he feeds from
a stolen taken soul

they call him jack o' shadows
and he's never ever seen
it's only when he's gone
you know that he's been
