Do not be scared

When the shadow man comes

Hush child hush

He only speaks in tongues

Do not be afraid

When the lights go out

For that means he’s here

So do not shout

The shadow man is nice

He swears on his soul

So take his hand

And trust those eyes of coal

He’s cold to the touch

But his smile’s so warm

This is just the calm

Right before the storm

Run child run

The shadow man lied

You let him in

There’s no where to hide

You scream and cry

To be set free

He thinks this is a game

As you try to flee

There’s no way out

You’ve let him in

His words are like daggers

Piercing your skin

“I am the shadow man

More evil than sin

Just give up now

And Let. Me. In.”

Mostly, I write stuff. And, like the Egyptians and the Internet, I put cat pictures on my walls. Also, I can read your Tarot.
