long day, young night

long day
young night
phantoms rise
on the checker board
.
finger tips move
tracing the path
a few killed
a few born
.
some pawned
some taken
none given
.
veils drop
shadows split
spirits merge
.
mind hangs
upside down
blind as a bat
.
no moves left
in the graveyard
the raven takes wings
in search of a moon
.
the bat still hangs
upside down
from her beak
.

I know that you have a penchant for nocturnal creatures..... But at least choose something that perches in normal positions....(owl for eg;)

Have to say that it rakes up the darker side of my mind! well written.
