morning solitude

me, my thoughts…..alone

within this darkest shadow i’ve ever known

drifting to find an escape

knowing there is no such place


i pass through myths and lore

shadows of love cast from time before

promises made within the lies that were laid

only remnants of shattered love remain


magick calls to me over and over

i turn away looking for that non-mystical closure

long walks on broken roads

destiny with no more stories to be told


how does one return

from a betrayers burn

gather ashes to rebuild?

create layers of walls and shields


ones lessons take on many paths

dreams lay bare in the aftermath

let the pieces lay scattered on the floor

is there nothing to take with you from before


where to go from here

another day another year

shadows filtered the light

does one ever get it right
