The Shadowed Self

Bars of words unspoken,
Wrap around me, frozen in suspension
Unshed tears swallowed
The salty taste of
Glacial ennui
Shards of ice, more finely tuned
Torture than piano wire,
Excoriating surface notes
Hits tones of penumbral grey
Silence’s timbre of my eclipse
Bound within this frozen waste
A captive to my shadow self
Come let us dance together
Life’s waltz of frozen living
Kiss me with a vampires kiss
With that kiss
A single tear
Unfrozen formed and slid
A single tear was shed
For my shadowed self
