The Shadow

Document

I’m leaning on the sands edge


Staring at the tides wading closer; no further away


I’ve been standing here for days


With nothing left to say


 


The cold salt water


Just scratching away


At these old wounds


Under the soles of my weary feet


 


The sun is not rising


It’s not setting either way


The cold gray light just strong enough


To create a shadow of my stay


 


It’s tall and long reaching over days


I can see where my mind may have strayed


Closing off from this day


No color left for me to appreciate


 


Disillusioned and ordained


I have left myself in order to stay
