Abyss & Apex : First Quarter 2007 : “Shadow Of Her” by William Blake Vogel III

“Shadow Of Her”

William Blake Vogel III

The glorious starlight
Shines, the night
In me is drawn to her
Resplendence I don’t mind, I’m just fine
Being the shadow of her
Wonder, graceful
As the sky.



From the abyss wilds outside of California, Missouri, William Blake Vogel III writes a unique brand of Classic Horror that bleeds with a poetic edge.

Vogel has sold pieces to GRAFIKA Magazine, SURREAL Magazine, CHAMPAGNE SHIVERS Magazine, NIGHT TO DAWN Magazine, BLACK SATELLITE, SCAVENGERS, FANTASQUE, Horror Carousel, T–Zero, etc. He has also appeared in various anthologies including “Open Graves” (2004), “Potter’s Field” (2005), etc. William also writes a column, “Theories In Chaos,” for THE ETERNAL NIGHT website
