That Shadow


close my eyes

That shadow in her smile

depicts all of her history,

but she hides behind those eyes,

a forever mystery

though the storms they come and go,

she knows she’ll never walk alone,

those true colors always show,

how far that she has gone,

life has thrown some curves,

the lines are often blurred,

but she climbs up on those nerves,

like they’re rock and she, the shore,

sometimes the wind that blows

cuts through her like shears,

in her heart she knows,

that it makes her much more fierce,

there’s such a flame that burns

casting shadows on her spirit,

but the darkness soon learns,

she’s the only light that bears it,

naked in her hands,

because she sees right through,

love always understands, and stands,

behind the things you say and do,

fear can rule a heart, only if you let it,

she breaks all the rules,

someday you may get it,

true love wins 


…the duels…
