Soft shadows

I walk away from you
seeking firm ground to stand on
finding only soft shadows instead
you're gone and all that I once felt
has been invalidated...
In one brush stroke of a minute
no one I have ever met
before or since
has been so merciless
able to shoot your barbs
in all the vulnerability I tried to hide
leaving me to join the walking dead
unresting... full of restraints
fearful of the lingering dangers
that permeate me...
Lightening bolts of flickering remembrances
shows my consciousness
so much reality welling up
from places that had never existed before...
