Shadow warriors

It is a mythology daddy
My daughter assures me
As we recount the story
The dream I had
The shadow floating in the void
That is my mind
A horse,
A knight,
A savage warrior
A hyena eating the dead
I scream in my sleep
As hyena turns the faces
Of the dead to face me
I avoid knowing
My daughter shakes me
Out of my terror laughing
It’s only a mythology daddy!
