Amongst the Darkest Shades of Night

Amongst the Darkest Shades of Night


You can feel the dark in Ravenwood
It lives there amid the trees
Black tendrils reach out like feathers on Raven Wing 
Willing to whisk you away into darkness 

Never heard
Never seen 
Amongst the darkest shades of night

A ghost of thought shivers Behind Blue Eyes 
Shuttered from day they heed a warning
Do not stray from the Moonlit Path 
It is Nevermore Grey before the light is lost

  1. This is masterly done! ❤️ I especially love; "A ghost of thought shivers Behind Blue Eyes
    shuttered from day they heed a warning." :)

    1. Thank you. I ended up going a bit darker than I expected. I got caught up with the word shade and all it's various meanings.

    1. Thank you! I did have visions of Mirkwood and the write definitely hints in that direction!
