My Poems

Radiating Shadows

I looked up at the dying light
The earth embracing the sun
The love-meet of the horizon
And yet under these shadows
These deep dark shadows
My demons lurk closely
Free of fear, free of the phantom pain
I look back
At my footsteps, the trace I left behind
The thought crosses my mind
Was I ever something, someone? Will I ever be someone?
Or will I let my fears take it all away?
Until the day I finally get to be that someone
Somewhat soliciting from this world
This eternal abyss
And the weak abysmal love I hold in my breast
I’ll wake up someday
I’ll go home that day
I’ll know who I am
I’ll know what I will be
You are who I want
Home is where I need to be
