shadows return

one  looks
in the mirror
missing something
my shadow
a true 
love dead

would go 
to hell and back
to find my love
looking back 
my reflection
a ghost 
of who i am

have you taken 
my soul
like a vampire 
you drained me
everything is night
you sucked 
the life of me

grey expressionless
a fake smile
looking back at me
in the mirror 
my reflection
slowly one's 
soul returns

my future looking
in a crystal ball
the cavity 
of my skull
lost in a reflection
 my shadows return
looking purely 
for love

    Love can surely drain us of our life and our strength. And, sometimes we don't even recognize ourselves anymore. This was very dramatic and dark, yet soulful and beautiful. Great visuals, as well. I loved it! I am adding it to my favorites!...Thank you for the kind comments, once again. It was good to hear from you! :)
