death is always near. but even closer than it may appear

Shadow crawler


In night and cold

There they go

Creeping through the trees and stones

You think you see and turn around

But nothings there, just a sound





Calling for your blood and soul.

They travel through shadow and time

Waiting for their kill, they undermine

You shake with fear

You know they are near

Then shadows leap

Their claws buried deep

Life is fading

They are feasting

As is the way with theses beasts

You will never know when you cease.

Loved it. There is just so much you can do with shadows as far as building up atmosphere and you did a good job of it here.
