for whom I dream

shadow hunter
you battle darkness
but slay empty air

silent whisper
in the embrace of echoes

coaches on broken wheels
feel the unsteady ground
it warns the careless

black silk
hide away at midnight
bells toll

light is a companion
for your demon hides behind it

silver glistens
lanterns reflected
on unpolished surface

the blade cuts

you awake
in bloodstained sheets
