LINGERING SHADOWS

LINGERING SHADOWS

 

The battle is ended

And I lay wounded…

dying

But I rise and endure

I wear my scars beneath my vestment

My armor shines for friend and foe

None can see that you’ve pierced my heart

My blunt-fisted denials

Are testaments to my resolve

The pleasurable moments of the past

Transform into the loneliness of the future

And become a laceration on my soul

Hope flits through my fingers

And is blown on the wind

Like you…

…never to return
