Playing with Night

The storm is coming across the waters The day has become night. Tears have replaced laughter And the mist interferes with sight How else could you explain the roaring noise The flashing coloured lights? The shadows of ghostly girls and boys If they all had perfect...

We’re Watching

It was always darker in this part of the island. Shera couldn’t figure out why. The sun was almost always shining beautifully. Clouds were rarely seen in the sky. Yet it seemed much darker than in other parts of the little island. A chill breeze blew here that never...

The Little Stone

It was the darkest hour of the darkest night in the darkest part of the world. No one wanted to be out on the street when the sun went down. The moon and the stars never appeared after dark. Great winds always took up, raging across the little village, and not a...

Silver blinks within the dark A stare piercing the soul Burning through your thoughts a single mark And through your heart a hole In the end that darkest place Will bring you the brightest light Doubt’s voice and fear’s face Will no longer rule the night...

Aftershock

The dying light is fading fast The sky is turning dark Fear is leaving at last But still there is a mark The scars will never fade away The memories will never leave But faith is due today The magic is set free It will take its time to claim your life It will creep...

Dusk is the Lonely Keeper
