What

Is it

That watches

In the darkness?

A pale ghostly moon

Hangs above the rooftops

Darkness itches your damp skin

Long old words echo in your mind

Old friends lost to a dark, storm-tossed sea

Death illuminated by a ghost light

Taking mind through a sea of dark starlight

To be awoken by time waiting

Old souls crying to be born now

To leave all darkness behind

Too few will be called forth

Darkness holds its own

By old fear gripped

Reluctant

To lose

All

AAAAA
