'Shadows crawl and shadows leap' - Atom Gush (Year 9)



(A villanelle - an old poetic form with 19 lines and repeating lines.)

Shadows crawl and shadows leap

Nightmares, horrors in the night

Through the darkness as we sleep

Beasts of cruelty slowly creep

Many eyes watching and bright

Shadows crawl and shadows leap

Flesh to eat and souls to reap

Beings made to spread their blight

Through the darkness as we sleep

Twisted creatures from the deep

Up from where there is no light

Shadows crawl and shadows leap

Monsters that would make you weep

As they torment, as they bite

Through the darkness as we sleep

Things you’d see if you would peep

Filling you with dread and fright

Shadows crawl and shadows leap

Through the darkness as we sleep
