The Shadow 

I live in the darkness of a shadow

It extends years before I was even known to exist

The pain it carries is deep

and burns deep in the soul of my loved ones

I try to reach out from behind

Crawling on hands and knees



Praying knowing prayers are never heard

One day I’ll walk once again in light

Under her sun

Shining bright

Gracing me with it’s love

Full and glorious 

Until that day I lay waiting 

Like a vampire in his grave

Waiting for the fog of this shadow to life…
