Her Shadow

February 17, 2005

I can’t remember

when last I saw her smile

and I can’t remember when last I could stand them

smiling all around her

for when she is in this darkness

the light they make lengthens her shadow

to overcast my own eyes

and so long has the shadow been here

too long…

And damn the ones who stand

around her laughing and singing their songs

they do not see her, her darkness.

They do not know she is there

but I know where she is

she is in my heart

and the shadows in my heart

are reflections of her own shadows…

And damn those who keep me from her
