The Shadowed Self


Bars of words unspoken,
Wrap around me, frozen in suspension
Unshed tears swallowed
The salty taste of
Glacial ennui

Shards of ice, more finely tuned
Torture than piano wire,
Excoriating surface notes
Hits tones of penumbral grey
Silence’s timbre of my eclipse

Bound within this frozen waste
A captive to my shadow self
Come let us dance together
Life’s waltz of frozen living
Kiss me with a vampires kiss

With that kiss
A single tear
Unfrozen formed and slid
A single tear was shed
For my shadowed self
