This is a creepy poem about the beasties that live in the shadows, or a sort of thing about the things that crave after the sunlight but can never touch it . I’ve been writing a few Halloween-y poems so I will be putting some of my favourite spooky new things up over the next few weeeks in preparation for goth Christmas. Hopefully will be doing some more recordings at some point as well, as those are such fun!

Shadows rise,

Shadows fall,

Though as they




The eyes that follow

From the darkness


The sun they can

Never touch,

Only feeding on the


Of forgotten faded light

That lie

On your skin,

As they


Into the night’s



I’m putting all this up for freeeeeee, for the love of writing and your enjoyment, and if you would like to use it for your own purposes that would be awesome. However, it’s my writing, and I must ask you to ask me first, and credit me (obviously). Also, if you do I’d really love to see/hear/watch it!

If you’d like to support me, on a monthly basis, then i’d love you forever, and feel free to sign up for my patreon here – i’ll link the blog to here whenever I post something new, as well as a few extra snippets just for patrons (so extracts of WIP larger projects etc)
