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.
