Shadows – By: D.e.e.L

A dark image of my past
Lingers about me like a presant
The ribbon binding it shut a pail blue
A silk strip that I do not wish to have tampered
For I want the world behind me to stay sleeping
I want the world before me to finally wake up from the dream
And force my life into the reality I so desire

But that box
That gift from my past
Sitting there unopened
Taunts me

  1. I read all your posts. It seems like a lot of your work deals with love and loss. This piece resonates with me…makes me think about the gift I had with someone and how it ended… Unanswered dreams in a mist of love ending too abruptly.
