What lies beyond the shadows?
A haunting image. BOO!!!

Beyond the shadows are gruesome creatures;
their faces distorted with beast-like features.
Where they come from, no one knows.
They wait for me beyond the shadows.

In the darkness, they await.
Grisly horror to be my fate.
Death felt in the air, my fear grows.
Evilness lingers beyond the shadows.

They finally come to take me to Hell;
their black spirits casting a demonic spell.
The terror felt inside easily shows.
Death comes for me beyond the shadows.

Beyond the shadows my soul was taken;
lost in a world where I’ve been forsaken.
When they may come for you, nobody knows.
Beware of what lies beyond the shadows.
