Shadow

Impart to the leaves

Your shuddering heart of darkness.

I hunted you

Like a deer

Through my dreams

Vast and shadowy.

 

We tangled in clutches of bone flowers

(who knew how sharp they would wound)

Tearing away flesh and modesty.

You were my secret poison

Turning my gaze distant

Shattering my soul, unrecoverable.

 

But now I have you

Writhing in my grip,

Slithering from pen tip.

And you are just one more shadow

Exiled

From within.
