The Shadows

Staring out into the midnight skies
silence pounding throughout my body
I keep a quiet watch of the stars above
each held warm within my breast
as they sparkle an glisten so cheerfully
From the dark recesses shadows appear
reaching out an pulling them in ~ one by one
until it suffocates an slowly extinguishes their light
All that remains is but the soft glow of the moon
Tears falling down across my cheek
 I plead with the shadows not to take
the moon from me as well
The shadows listen not to my whispered plight
mocking me as it drifts around to circle the moon
til the last of its rays are extinguished as well
Sitting alone in the dark thundering silence
I relinquish myself unto the shadows
an as its coolness embraces me
my light is extinguished.
