poetry for a new epoch

‘Welcome Home’

My shadow is cast in all directions
The lights shine brighter for me
My footfalls are hard on the pavement
I will not be stopped

I chased Death out the door
and under the pallor of the night sky,
she worked her way into my chest
Her fingers ventured forth
with the warmth to melt my iron doors

Now I smoke a cigarette in the bone yard
I sit here waiting, wishing
for someone to lie by my side
The wind moans like a lover in my ear
It whispers ‘come back to me’

Walk with me through my haunted places
If we grow a shadow, it’ll soon disappear
I can show you beauty,
if you follow longer than fear allows
The smaller lights cast a greater glow
in the blackest of places
