Raven's Shade

you don't know me          
& never will          
I clothe myself          
with raven feathers          
nighttime covers         
to keep out prying eyes          
the ones that would consume          
my gentle soul          
taint my blood          
with their hate          
twist the knife deeper          
creating a gnawing ache called pain          
guilt riddled holes          
are puss filled wounds          
in the darkness I reside          
where evil, the decrepit            
are common place          
shaded by my realm          
see my face fade to black          
cloaked in the shadows          
sleeping with the demons I know          
you sipped my flavor once          
when I was naive            
that was once upon a time          
when I was ruled by paranoia          
you took a slice of me            
I vowed to all hell          
it would never happen again          
this is now my domain          
if you step to me          
remember you're stepping to a Queen
