The Phantom Shadow

Nobody's seen a shadow like I, a shadow that glows only at night.
From the nightly depths and shallows of the gallows this shadow does rise
Not in light of the fellow, bright yellow up high in the skies
There is something amiss standing in the mist
A shadow in the fog as the sky is moon-kissed.

A fright in this night as terror does strike, the sprites make light as the shadow takes flight
From only my sight does this shadow appear
And only by night will this shadow cause fear

I am the only of all who is mentally unscathed
For those who can't see are frantically enraged.
they all feel horror, but I cannot,
for I am the horror of which they sought.

To make it quick, my fairly scared fellow
I am the horror, I am the phantom shadow.(poems go here)
