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?
