Shadow

Shadow

in spit of your passing
I feel you in my shadow
perhaps as my guardian
perhaps my lack of purge
to let you go

my heart
my soul
I cannot part
we always become one
in the dark
I see you there
I see you here
perched
spewing
your likeness in remembrance

I feel your embrace
breathing shallow in your last day
but in my shadow you reside
as I make efforts now
to the pass time away

Confused Fury

   Confused Fury  

          I.

lies vanish at night’s beginning regret runs rapid
when only lonely can console me

          II.

caught in this hell storm
colored crimson
tears map out
the last years
of my life from what’s left
on this face I remember

          III.

courage pulled
from the cracks deep
inside the cement forming
around lungs breathing revenge

           IV.

placed
that barrel in my mouth
and pulled the trigger
why am I still here?
