Let the darkness lull me to sleep,
with dreams of red sunsets.
Clouds drifting on cotton balls,
encircling me with their softness.
Let the moon’s face shine on me,
making me feel safe and secure.
The stars twinkle in merriment,
ready to tackle the night.
The day brings a new enemy
to our peaceful shore.
A dark kingdom will rise up,
a new kingdom for The Dead.
A hooded figure approaches me,
his gait slow and sure.
He slowly pulls back his hood
to reveal the creature beneath.
“You have waited for me, dear one.
I will have my ice princess at my side.”
Wolf quickens his stride to reach me,
But I turn my face away.
I peek through my eyelashes
At his beautiful face.
He abruptly turns around
To summon his army.
