My shadow's name is Eris.

Eris. Dark-haired, black-eyed. Heart of flint, falcon-light fingers.

Face sharp, light and black. Black, Black, always black; 

Snake-tongue 'gainst oblivion lips. Held high, bone sharp, a knife given a Kiss of Death.

Tight black clothing, and a cloak of night, without the gift of stars.

Feet o' floating, black as well.

Weaver of poison, enprisoner of the sunlight.

Laugh enough to melt a heart. And then bind it silently!

Yet glimmers 'neth, a spark lingers,

remembering a time when the dark was a far-flung dream.

A dream known as Eris.

Who is now my shadow.
