My Shadow April 25, 2012

The sun rose up into the overcast sky

filling the dark earth with rays of life

that chased the clouds as they split and scattered

not willing to defy the golden orb


Who knew that even on the sunniest of days

my heart would be bruised and battered

my lungs would ache with pain

and my limbs feel like lead?


Not even the golden rays of sunlight

can lift the dark blanket of hopelessness

that shadows me wherever I tread

and colors all that I see
