Shadow 4


There was something magical-
A spark to what we had
An attraction, that when broken
Nearly caused me to go mad

And I was then caught
In the throws of loss and fear
I'd lost all I ever sought
And so I shed my last tears

I cried my soul to pieces
And I begged you not to go
But you stubbornly turned away
Letting no emotion show

Panic-stricken and confused
Your old words whispered through my head
And I clung to them tightly
Knowing if I let go I’d be dead

But the fear drained away
And your words faded out
And the only thing that filled my head
Was depression and strong doubt

No more tears left these eyes
I really just ran out
And my heart didn’t sting anymore
It started to block everything out

And for a time I lay
Silent and dark
With nothing left to say-
The Shadow fled from light

One day I realized
That was my last break
I looked around with jaded eyes
And knew I’d had all I could take

I shoved you, Reaper
Far away
So I could try to live
Life day by day

Happiness didn’t come
But I forced it on
The Shadow with a smile
Woke the following dawn

The first time I’d ever been so cruel
You see Reaper,
Though I’d lied my life away,
I’d never fooled myself

But this time the lie ran so deep
And the façade so strong
That I convinced even me
That nothing was wrong

But as they begin
All stories must end
And my white cloak is revealing my sin
As it slips away

The mask is falling
From my tear stricken face
And the pawns are all moving
From their allotted place

My castle is crumbling
The dragons awakening
And guards are fumbling
To hide away

Here I stand
Once more alone
I feel empty and exposed
My real self shown

You memory floods my mind once more
As I stand at your door
The dragon gives chase
will you save me?
