Dark shadows raise their head
Creeping out of the wooden beams of my fragile existence
Taking a few steps into the sun, I trip over those shadows that have devoured me in my past
Reducing me to a shell of empty space and a universe of internal strife
Mixed messages emanate from my being as I fight a battle and yet submit on the very next breath
Black shadows go away! Dark shadows, if you please, No, rather, evil shadows, I demand (!) let me be!
