The Shadows Enter
The shadows play a tune
New to the room. Is it my eyes that fail me
Or that around me failing?
I have run so much
From these shadows;
Now they return The moment I am alone.
My eyes are that that fail me, As my mind melts my being.
Now arrives the shadows that tethered my mind,
The agony that told me, “you are mine”- Was there ever a piece of hope inside?
The shadows enter- My eyes are those that fail me. I cry desperately, leave me! The fear growing fast in my mind,
Breaks the soul so sacred inside.
I have returned to the place of fear,
The images of the past, Torments me in its grasp. To the soul breaking inside, Will you let go of the past?
