A Whisper from the Shadows

Leaves rustles

And the wind spoke

A soft whisper

All silence broke,

 

He is coming

O! Indeed

A creature of the moon

And the sinister night,

 

Claim, he shall

A life for himself

Not a rogue or

A filthy being,

 

He approaches for

A fair and pretty

Virgin maiden

By tonight, indeed,

 

Cower under your beddings

Simper not and fear

Not turning back now

The creature is here,

 

Claim, he shall

A life for himself

To satiate his formidable

And invincible mistress,

 

An ugly sorceress

Clad in midnight robes

Skin wrinkled and

A mirror put to shame,

 

The creature has taken

The maiden with hair

For gold and roses

For lips, so exquisite,

 

A spell was cast on her

Her beauty withered

As she watched her hands

Turn as the leaves of autumn,

 

Thus! Began the cackling

She stood tall

Watched the maiden fall

And restored her youth,

 

Claimed, he has

A life for himself

Ate her heart

And drank her pure blood,

 

No power could match

Her dark sorcery

Everyone trembled by

Her very shadow,

 

Along came a princess

Of the highlands afar

‘Remove that abomination’

Whimpered the villagers,

 

Her bravery had no boundaries

Possessed an enchanted dagger

To strike none

But the evil that resides,

 

Came upon the trapdoor

Shattered it to splinters

Arose it into the air

And struck the howling beast,

 

Drew blood, oh yes, indeed

Anger replaced by agony

He howled and writhed

As a battered pup,

 

Thunder clapped and storms

Swirled as she struck

The tower of the witch

Into two halves,

 

Hexes flew in the air

The battle had begun

Radiance fought the shadows

It was time to end her era,

 

At long last

The witch fell bleeding

Darkness of the shadows

No blood or pain,

 

Vanished into the air

The dagger did ensnare

And banish the evil

Now as good as dead.
