Who Am I in This?

A CROSSROADS IN SHADOW

What’s up ahead, there in the dark
Beyond those first smiles? Underneath
The shimmer hides the shiver, cold
As morning and just as fierce. I’ve
changed my mind; go on without me.

Let go before you leave a mark.
We made it this far. Lay a wreath,
So we’ll remember when we’re old,
And wander back here half alive,
Searching for a love that might be

Waiting still. A shadow love, stark
Naked in the glare, all claw and teeth.
A wild love, abandoned. Stories told
About what might have been will thrive
Untended, so go. We break free.
