Shallow Shadows

I don’t want

To see

Your shadow,

Your silhouette

Reminds me of

Pain that you

Cease to fathom,

My mind drifts

At random,

In the dark

You are a vampire,

A mere phantom,

Your heart fades

Into a patronizing

Smile of a

Jack o lantern,

The events that

Lead to this vision

Was an unsurprising


Nightmares mixed

With cold sweats as

I sleep in a

Heart broken tavern
