Shadows dance before my eyes

Like serpents, enthralled by the charmer

Twisting in the flickering candlelight

Their movement lulls my tempest within.

If only I could be so free!

Shadows on my chamber wall,

Their rhythm shifting like the sands of time,

Whisper to the deepest recesses of my soul.

"Be free dear child." They call out.

so when the sun slips beneath the horizon

I have no choice but to obey their command.

Free at last, alone with the shadows,

I am free and I dance!
