Dainty Devils

Dainty Devils

They dance among us, ever gleeful
Like dust or dew above the grass
Clinging closer as we shuffle
Whispering darkness in our ears

They don’t abide by laws of man
Or ill-fed conceptions of right and wrong
They want for nothing but our destruction
Written in blood across the lands

No sea, mountains or plains are free
Of places where these dainty devils be
Hiding in among the common folk
Growing louder with passing time

You may run, hide or falter
But no matter the distance, time or reason
There they’ll be, clung to your shoulder
Whispering darkness in your ear

Try as you might to ignore them longer
They know your every want and fear
They plague your dreams
They haunt your nightmares

These devils come in every sort
Hooded, masked or fiendishly bare
The only way you’ll ever know
Is as your mind watches them grow

In that window, mirror or cup
The slightest light that gives a glow
Until you’ve finally given up
Then you’ll notice where they show
