25. scavenger of souls

The scavenger of souls,
no respecter of seasons,
wraiths the planet
hungry as night.
He will drip his progeny
nightmare into your eyes
and fill your ears
with darkness
as day.
But he cannot bear a candle,
each wounding shaft of light
sends him scurrying
to undead shadows
and the rotting hunger
of defeat.
