Disguised as the devil, I hide beneath your shadow
and creep out little yet often
sense curdling, my effect is far from benign.
I feed on the tusks of beasts long forgotten
cold to the touch,
my influence intoxicates the blood that rhymes.
of course, I am strongest when set alite.
non existent yet thrive as your weakness-
I can be starved but never killed;
as long as the physical heart beats, I shall remain immortal.
merely a figment of the human self,
what am I?
A poorly written riddle.
