overtaking the light with gloom

shadows scurry across the room

hiding behind chairs in sharp angles

they trip the light streaking in tangles

growing up as the light fades

holding dark and bleak parades

marching boldly woodenly tall

they scour edges along the wall

creeping over books like an eerie ghost

reaching out behind a lanky bedpost

washing under tables in seedy waves

partying nightly amongst the graves
