Who Am I in This?


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.
