I’ve tried to warn you, but you don’t listen as well as don’t see. I whisper about them as you pass. “Watch out!” I hiss, and you jump and speed up, desperate to be away from me. It’s not me you need to fear.
I’ve tried shouting to alert you to them. I stripped naked and screeched. “The devil’s in the shadows. They are coming for you, they are coming for all of us. They will drink your blood and devour your souls. They will take your little girl.” I pointed to the passing family.
It did no good. They locked me away and hurt me.
Today I will make you see.
I’m standing in the square, jagged metal in hand. You pass all around me, the invisible forcefield of my squalor and my madness keeping you at bay.
I shout my warning one last time. “The devil’s in the shadows are here for you. Flee while you can. The blood will draw them, they are here for the blood.” My long life on the cruel streets have taught me pain. Even so, I could never have imagined the searing agony of the tearing of my flesh. My shouts a wet, red gurgle now.
Around me you scream, most of you backing away from the scene but one brave soul rushes forward to help. Her hand over my gaping, ruined throat she tries to sooth me. “It’s OK.” She tells me. “Somebody call an ambulance.” She pleads.
I grip her wrist. “The shadows” I whisper to her “What can you see in the shadows?” She looks up confused then her eyes widen with terror.
She sees them, and I die with a heavy heart. I had always hoped that they were just in my mind.
