IN THE SHADOWS

The load gets heavier
The words are like swords striking the heart
One, two, three, four, five….
Can you hear them?
The thoughts represent the bow
The words represent the arrows
Take aim
Bow your back
Set your sights on the target
Aim and fire
It heads for the target
I watch it go
It disappears
It hits the intended target
On my knees I lay
The pain is paralyzing
The smile on your face is tormenting
Whether truth or lies
The damage is done
The wound is made
Tears run down my cheeks
My shadow bleeds
It bleeds not for me
But for the love I feel for you
I do not hate you
As much as I love you
To protect myself and heart
I take her little hand in mine,
Walk away and into the light
Into the arms of protection
The arms of everlasting and eternal love
