When the stars advance to take the sky
Pushing mightily, the sun into the ground.
Shadows come alive and rise in the night
To haunt those weary in body and mind,
To challenge the sanity of thoughtfulness;
Realized between the sounds and illusions
Of perception’s innuendo implied.
The blaze of clouds fall into the purple hues
Shimmering reflections, frights awakening –
Whispering into thoughts; unrealized they worry,
Like shadows unseen in the darkness.
Dancing joyfully, worshiping Nyx or Apep
Shrouding the world in their embrace.
Of darkness hiding; the shadow opposing light.
