There once was a shadow who grew from a fire within
Born out of blistering heat
That would burn all those who came near
And out of ash would suffocate anyone that dared.
Her soul was trapped in this casket
Covered in dreaded roses
But none of their edges.
She would say that how she was caged was the most foul
For those who had trapped her created beauty
But she was sorrow
She didn't want to be known as something that is romanticized.
She was destruction
And meant to be that way for balance
But the ones in the light simply didn't understand
So in fear they made her less than what she was meant to be.
This created chaos
Something the earth never intended there to be
For violence broke out among those who lived in the light
As well as those who were born in the dark.
Their sides clashed
Emotions oozed while the skeletons fell
All because the earth was no longer balanced
As those living never truly understood why the shadows had to exist in the first place
