It was night at noon.
The sun disappearing.
Behind the moon’s shadow.
A darkness decending fast.

A solar eclipse was taboo.
An eerie silence entombed me.
The moon’s shadow stayed.
But time continued on.

Trapped in the moon’s shadow.
In this ancient forbidden city.
Was I crazy to venture here?
Not a soul in sight, except me.

I had snucked over the wall.
What secret lay inside?
One that must never get out.
This had become a bad omen.

My footsteps echoed loudly.
I stayed in the soft glow.
For the darkness hid its secret.
A beast; yet, human too.

Each day at noon I heard the howl.
It still made my skin crawl.
I saw its bloody fangs.
Each time, I turned tail and ran.
