The Shadow of We

Creeping around the shell of who I am
Pin-pricked ends
Blowing yolk-soul upon poetry walls
Dripping onto you
Onto me
Onto the shadow of we

I am hollow inside
Like the depth of your smile
The whisper of empty
Echoes my name

The vultures of reality
Peck relentlessly at me
Carrying pieces away
To nest inside your mind
Forming you
Forming me
And the shadow of we

Build me around you
Your fortress, your shroud
Then discard me back to emptiness
so that I am once again
Void of depth and reason
For I cannot see beyond your eyes

My heart struggles against
The closed view of your mind
With dry and painful beats
It strains to move

My voice falls below you
My wounds refuse to heal
I am buried
By the power
And the weight
Of your love

Your love for you
And of me
And of the shadow of we
As I slip into my nothingness
And slowly cease to be
