Shadow Soul by Ken Allan Dronsfield

Yes, I shall admit, I love you,

as dark creatures that stalk

the night are to be loved;

concealed in icy shadows

or a black haunted heart.

Albeit the Sun now a blurring

evanescent memory. Our faith

and hopes are born after twilight;

whilst creeping among raucous

thoughts of anguished despair.

Raise hands to hide a star shine.

Walking hushed paths and keeping

your faithless desires locked within.

I shall always be but a whisper away,

once the lit candles are extinguished.

For I’ll secretly ride upon the steamy

ribbons of impassioned desires within

your essence. Pursuing the rapture

while I chain the evil inner demons;

Shadow Souls waltz to a fiery flair.
