For National Poetry Month, I present another poem for day seventeen: I Am Shadows. This is a little piece about assassins using shadow magic. I'll be honest, I know why I like this theme but I can't really point to what caused it besides the Shadow Dancer prestige class from Dungeons and Dragons.

I Am Shadows

I am shadows:
Dark,
Quiet,
and Hidden.

I am at the door:
Sealed,
Locked,
and Forbidden.

I am inside:
Stealthy,
Armed,
and Ready.

I'm behind you:
Bladed,
Quiet,
and Killing.
