A piece inspired by @vachemorte's dark music is about to appear in the lines below. It would be a shame not to be accompanied by the tunes that helped in its birth. Hit the play button once you follow the link below and enjoy reading
The shadows are following me.
Behind my every step they are.
The twigs and leaves cracking underneath my feet scare them not.
On the very contrary, it is what lures them closer to me.
It gives off the smell of fear
And my scent stains the air
The warm and humid air of the forest
Until they wrap around me
And fold me tight into their arms
If they even have ones
They try to smother me and my pain
And they are good - oh so good - at it
There is not much of me left
For I have become one with the shadows
I have become a shadow of myself
And with the shadows I shall now live
