The Shadow Man

Sorely due, into the night
and the shadow man, he was here
He sat at his desk
Grim things his mind did contain
He put pen to paper
A world of liberated thought
Mastered in the fires of memory
His stories of longing
Born in stillness, nursed by black ink

Villagers read, filled with fright
But the shadow man shed not a 
single tear
Imprisoned by starry rest
The aged page did black ink stain
And whisper the story of a caper
Many ages of mad men his story 
sought
On ink black waters glimmering
to the night his heart was belonging
From his spirit his words were 
linked
