Shadows of Fate

I saw a shadow today

It was mine, bent at the knees

Head in hands

And silhouetted tears caught the breeze

 

My shadow remained in place as I went upon my way

I sat on a bench and watched

A shadowed heart fell to the ground

Shattering into a jigsaw, pieces yet untouched

 

A woman sat by my side, empty branch within her hand

Her shadow appeared too, it was just the same as mine

A brief glance was enough

Two hearts broken floating aimlessly in time

 

Our hands met in comfort

A shared pain, no words to command

As we cried, the shadows’ tears ran dry

And each shattered heart rose

And fell in the others’ shadowed hand

 

The shadows straightened, with shared hearts they embraced

Pain of the past entwined

A oneness shared

Two souls bared

 

I rose from the bench, mind entranced

And with the woman’s hand in mine

I asked. ‘Walk with me into the sun’

Aware that just behind us our healing shadows danced
