Shadows softly creep.
Such are these stealthy carnivorous things.
Lurking in silence they consume the light.
Unaware, sleeping man surrenders without a fight.
Spindly cords crawl forth in black confusion.
Tentacles pull in the desperate seeking absolution.
Still unaware…man sleeps whilst shadows steal his dreams.
Morning then comes; a fresh start to a new day.
Bird’s sing and bees gather at the vine.
Happy is man in this, his most simple time.
But soon the sun goes down and shadows again softly creep.
