Shadows

Shadows of a face I see

Pain oozing beyond every pore

Blissful smells

mocking empty arms

Worthless words that shatter my core

 

Shadows reflect in the mirror for me

Dust resting in places not seen

Unnoticed stains

Caress faded floors

Memories blurring from what could have been 

 

Shadows saturate the world that I see

Dying embers of defeated hope 

Tainted blood

Cavorting through veins

Stoking despair in a heart that can’t cope

 

Shadows fill up a void in me

A darkness no one can know

A singular thought 

A black, sparkling want

Wretched notions arise from below

 

Shadows of a face I’ve seen

Hurt dancing like fire in my eyes

Gut wrenching cracks

A slither of pain

Swinging lifeless, my soul no longer cries
