shadow constellation (November 2005)

13 Apr

deep in my heart
come the cobwebs of night
and moonless skies

one dull star called Doubt
another called Weakness
the pointer marks Fear

a constellation called Loathing
did I have to run so far away
to break your heart

and cast my shadow into depths
I can not honour
or hold

how do I love
this person (my judgement)
is longer than the shadow

my shadow has darkened my heart
how do I face the truth
and meet you in this space
