Within the darkness hides a shadow
Most were afraid to approach
Lost to minds bitter battle
That nobody wanted to encroach.
They whispered about it to others
Nobody seemed immune
They danced with it in battle
Yet nobody knew the tune.
Silence ripped the atmosphere
Then begged for it all to end
Where danger lurks and scores are kept
The weak are left to fend.
They do complicated mathematics
In rooms that keep them at bay
People tend to get lost in rhythm
When they worry about the pay.
One dangles spit from his mouth
Another wants to grope
Yet you don’t know which you want
Now isn’t that a slippery slope?
Into the darkness came a man
Only she could see
She knew immediately she loved him
But who could he be?
Handed him her weapon
Feeling nearly healed
Both of them cried the night
She handed him her shield.
