Shadows Deep

Slipping through in

the night;

Frightening my child

as he sleeps

in the night;

Waking him,

they speak,

they tell my son

it is his

mother they have

come for,

it is her they

want to keep;

Yet,

it is his mother

that they fear,

so they frighten

him instead;

They are cowards

coming here;

I will lock them in

forever deep;

They crawl into

his dreams,

then he starts

to scream as

they ly

dead rotted bodies

at his feet;

He comes into my room

screaming;

If as he still is

dreaming;

He tells me

the shadow men came

for him,

slipping through as

spiders

slipping through as

snakes;

Wrapping him from

his feet

up to

his tiny face;

This is so

he may not

speak;

He crawls now

to

my bed at

night,

all I can do

is hold him tight;

He tells me

 they can not

enter,

wherever I may dwell,

wherever I may sleep,

that they fear

me,

very,

very deep;

The shadow spirits

know;

I am not the weak,

I will lock them in forever

deep;

An eternity of

nothingness,

This is their

true fate;

Seraphim fallen from

above,

another race;

I will one day take

them to their judgement,

lock them in

that dreaded place;

The shadows are no more,

for

my home they

adore

no more;

I have cast them

from

my home once more,

and

never to return;

They have left my

son alone for

now;

But,

I still scream

for Gods good

grace;

Even though I’m

 fallen,

I hold my son

 tight

every night and

pray.
