‛My name is Shadow,
Child, death is how I live.'

I like that part

Review courtesy of the review game's review marathon (link in my profile).

Interesting - not strict haiku format, but an experimental variation on it. I can appreciate that, and I think you make it work. I like the last three lines in particular; they really leave a sort of haunting echo in my mind and resonate well to me.

Parts of it feel a little trite, though. "Smooth as silk" for instance is a very cliche simile. If you've heard of a simile before, read it, seen it, whatever - you probably shouldn't use it in your poetry because it's not "yours" it's not new, it's just a repeat. (Take the advice for what you will. :] )

Very dark and beautiful. Probably one of my favorite poems!
