shadows walk with me

as I pace these floors


awashed in a deluge of grief

I forget to breathe


sorrow, the only constant

between then and now


knowing this day would come

brings no comfort


even the rising sun can’t reach my woes

in this space, Darkness wins


and so I pace, trying to trace the trail

back to yesterday
