A Dark Shadow Creeps

In the eyes if this old dog
A dark shadow creeps
In its blindness
Shelby is suffering

In the branches of this barren tree
A dark shadow creeps
No leaves, no roots
It feels nothing

In the limbs of this child
A dark shadow creeps
Young and sickly
A short life ends

In the heart of this old man
A dark shadow creeps
Long life, prosperous
It as well is blown out

Blown out like a light
Eaten by the dark shadow at night
