Velvet Shadows - Arianna*

Velvet Shadows the night becomes
The mundane world falls asleep

And the ethereal replaces
The harsh bright day
The shade of night
Black-blue
Soft
Blood red
Hides the lonely heart, the ravaged soul
The bleak streets come alive
And transforms from urban blight
And decay
To the Asylum of the
Damned
Humanity streams past
In colors of Morality
Through the ages
Pages
Turning the world around
Musty and yellowed
Forgotten to all but the Ancient
The knowledgeable,
The ones beyond recollection
The screams of the past go
Unheard
The violence so easily dulled
By the Novocain of history
The sharp teeth remain
Penetrating
Pulsating
Under the skin of civilization
In the velvet shadows
Of the night

(*Written by Heather Johnston as Arianna, Toreador Primogen of New Havenby Night, Chico, CA)
