They never come
in the light of day,
but always at night
so the darkness
can hide their skill
at stealing souls
of the living.

They leave you as empty
as a desert well
your mouth parched
and your soul scorched.
Not by the sun,
but by their devil tongues
and hard black hearts.

You can’t escape
their night attack.
Only when the sun
comes up in the east
will you find ease
for the mind that was
tortured all night long.

Their devil tongues
are not silent in the light,
but you will be able
to see they are
only a mind game
without a body
to walk in the Light.
