Child of The Night

As the cold air settles,
And the darkness consumes the cobblestone,
A dark figure makes Her way through the fog,
She knows Fear,
And She knows Pain,
She is forever trapped,
And yet,
Free from it all,
She has seen much,
And is wise from years,
She is no longer a child,
Alas She is not a woman,
She is a Shadow,
And nothing more,
In a world of Lights and Life,
She is death and pain,
A plague to some,
And a release to others,
And She slowly fades,
To claim her next victim...
