“Our Shadows

Our shadows
Like our demons 
Follow
Wherever we go 

The mad
Children
Running in
Moonlight 

Riding wild winds
Avoiding the sun 
Knowing
That shadows
Dwell there

Unaware of
Ones
That dwell in
Darkness 

Much like angels
With burning halos 
Simultaneously
Beautiful yet
Horrible
One and the same

Unable to change
Our time comes
Early 

As the lion
Catching its prey 
We fall into
The eternal void
Devoured by
Our shadows
