Shadows

I’ll smile, in denial
Let this feeling in
I couldn’t feel more alive
Then when I let this go

Charade of broken tales
Stuttered words, chipped nails
Standing tall a memory

As hopes are setting sail

The poison in my eyes
Leaving trails, coffin nails
To things buried yesterday

A fire stirs inside…

The prison of my mind
Speaking unfamiliar times
The shadow of myself
Is lost but there to find

Shadows twist inside
Feeling more and more alive
When you truly face yourself
There is nothing left to hide

Clearing cobwebs of the past
A living hell that didn’t last
Scars are left behind
And pushed away just as fast

With a final breath
Loss is locked away
And with a final step

I let it go.

I let it go to live again.
