Heavy Shadows

hidden truths,

hidden secrets,

a burden on my soul.

heavy shadows,

coals in a Christmas stocking

buried in the corners

of my subconscious.

heavy shadows,

hidden truths,

hidden secrets,

left unopened,

left buried,

left unspoken.

it’s barren,

a desert landscape,

bones scattered.



It’s lush and green,

Sunset beaches,

Horses galloping.




It’s an ominous shadow

Lurking in the hallway,

creeping up the stairs.



She never knows where her

Imagination will lead her,

Until her pen

hits the blank page

And she starts to write.
