“Shadows Flowering” Dark Verse by Joseph A. Farina

continue to stare at shadows
curse the intrusive light
that grows them faint to die
leaving sharp shape and form

come to the dark kingdom
there your true self find
worlds immortal waiting
in silent shadows pulsing

peer into the abyss
unlike the skies
here there is cold fire
to warm your frozen soul

time has no dominion
in darkness no seasons turn
no bells toll mourning
here live without depth

silence within silence
where only you are sound
no longer voices baiting
like in the bitter light
