Casting Shadows


The sadness

Casts shadows

Unable to find the light

Or the darkness

Of oblivion


Hidden from view

Divided indiscriminately

By others

The pain

Multiplied by memories

That my heart can’t subtract

From the whole

Half finished sentences

Trailing behind me

Waiting to be heard

Which leaves me

Hidden from view

With only sadness

Casting shadows

Across my heart
