Drabble Challenge #103

Prompt: dark
With the beauty of angels and a soft mother's voice,
they beckon you in, but it's always your choice.
They'll make you feel welcome, from the moment you arrive.
Then calmly, and slowly, they'll eat you alive.

So try not to look, lest the urge get too strong.
And plug up your ears, so you can't hear their song.
But most important of all: Stay out of the light.
Always keep to the dark; keep to the night.

Once they know you, they'll track you. And they'll never quit.
But they won't step a foot where it's not brightly lit.
