The Shadow

Cover Image

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
