Shadows of a former self

Updated: Mar 22, 2021




Black or white

What would I have chosen

3 months ago and 2 nights

To hurt or to ashen

A grocery list of emotion


Uncalled fury

Looping strings of guilt

As a violin contrary

To the familiarity of its build

But sounds the same as it felt

What would I have done

What would I have done

If I wasn't me for one

And Sun hadn't time summon

Who am I?

Have I been backwards to none?


My reactions rest

With motions of a past self

Righteous one, put to test

The sorrow of loss now engulfs

Hope leaves, I have lost myself
