shrouded in deception.
Years ago, you,
were the center of my life,
now just a memory, within the darkness.
Dreams centered on the positive
invaded by a mystical dark force,
leaving me with a strange energy.
It started five days ago,
I awoke with death filling my mind,
the darkness was quite "real".
It has disturbed my sleep,
and now transfers this energy
into my waking thoughts.
Have I tapped into a lost soul?
perhaps, it is trying to tell me something
I strain to hear the cries of the evening shadow.
Turning to see in the darkness,
a figure stands within this shadow,
beckoning me to come.
the darkness is drawing me closer,
I shield myself from the negative energy.
My curiosity is overwhelming,
I must face this lost soul.
The energy is very powerful.
"My, child, do not be afraid, I come
as a forewarning to protect you."
The face of this shadow is familiar.
"You are in danger,
You must protect yourself
or you will be consumed."
Then the shadow vanishes,
and I am left standing there
in the darkness of the evening.
I have deeply rooted feelings
surfacing, causing me to become anxious.
Can I face this reality?
The evening shadow
was that of my own being.
I know deeply within
that I am on a path of destruction.
I begin to release all earthly posessions;
All material attachments, while
concentrating on the journey within.
I am downsizing,
releasing all negative people
that inhibit my growth.
This shadow has enlightened
my mind, enriched my soul
and opened my heart.
I can now face any fear,
or any obstacle that comes my way,
to begin a life free of all negativity.
I dedicate this poem to:
and lightness of being!
