Disappearing Shadow

Document
Cover Image

She gazed out her second story window,


Never glancing down to see the lonely shadow.


Warm is the air, cold is her ignorance


He looks five stories up


 


Standing still, smoke curls from his cigarette


Nose held high the sent left unaffected 


He stays in wait to catch our Marionette 


 


She sees the world a place to shine,


To get out of this place is mine,


He dreams but not too big, 


for then he can't catch our little Marionette


 


Knight after Knight he watched them go


Her view from the window ever growing


Still she never looked down, with his heart pounding


He looks fifty stories up


 


Heavy is the shadow of time


Hard is the fall from unsatisfaction


She finally glances down, but all remains empty.


Not even his lonely shadow waits for the catch.
