Epiphany

The Pale Shadow

In Memorium

The presence
of the dark wall
so threatening
I see
nothing
beyond the darkness.
Onerous pressure
envelopes the whole;
the grey vision
imperishable.
Mind spinning
body aching
all anguish
all frustration
is drawn out
and numbs beyond numbness.
Unrelentless to all.
Unforgiving.
Pain forever implanted.
Sorrow
a sediment ~
disturbed
by the presence of the foreboding wall
willing to quell
unexpectedly
with stoic ease.
But the evanescent shadow
continues
eternally bound
to follow
many
unaware
of its diaphanous existence.
