We are made of shadows

That slink in the night

The tar-like substance

That is our love

Clings to the walls of this home

I know I’ll never get the stains out

That all who enter will see

The toxicity of you and me

We are made of shadows

And it is there that we thrive

There we will survive

For all we have ever known

Is the darkness

All we have ever felt

Is our love

Our love

That grows in shadows

May we never seek the light
