She hears you whisper
Calling out to her ‛come here'
Its voice smooth as silk
Tempted she follows the voice
Into the unknown
She feels safe there, she stands still
The voice whispers once
Two choices the voice has told
The girl decides one
But a price must be paid forth
She gives the voice pay
Her life she must take to stay
She asks the voice ‛name?'
Stepping over her body
‛My name is Shadow,
Child, death is how I live.'
The girl welcomes death.
