Scryptic

 

Thrilled to appear in the new issue of Scryptic, thanks to Chase & Lori!

 

weak winter sun

my reflection in your eyes

one last time

 

candles lit

she makes another wish

in vain

 

spirit broken

the bare stumps

of severed trees

 

failing light

how my worries

fill the darkness

 

cold shadows

not even a flicker

of recognition

 

somersaults her mind through confusion

 

alone now

the last leaf

clings on

 

lost in the past

the sadness

of shadow play

 

the broken clasp

of a favourite necklace

the bruise on her neck

 

twilight chill

your shadow reaches

under the door
