Sun's Shadow, prequel

The Shadow of the Sun
Empty conversations full of 
words with no point…
Happy statements that hide 
what is real…
Long talks that betray nothing 
of the past…
Days on end of words 
exchanged…but no insight to 
the truth...
Years of close contact…but 
nothing has been revealed…
The truth is like a shadow…
hiding in the sun…
The shadow that shines in 
darkness…that is the dark of 
the moon…
The sun’s warmth sheds no 
light…on the fear that is 
within…
The youth of yesterday holds 
the key inside…and treasures 
the gift of trust…
The warrior inside fears loss 
and pain from vulnerability…but 
finds refuge in absolute love…
Mutual unfailing loyalty…is what 
keeps the cracked heart 
beating…
The scars ignored only…when 
loves embrace infinitely 
shields…against the eternal 
pain…
The foreigner unceasingly 
waited…to sneak a peek 
inside…but found instead the 
fulfillment…to keep them both 
alive…
The hindrance of time and 
money…only increases the 
need…to embrace to stop the 
fear…to keep the past’s damage 
from resurfacing…
The darkness fills the void…of 
icy caves of loss…the hope from 
mature youth…strives to heal 
the ancient wounds…
 The absence of absolute 
physical presence…stunts the 
hope given by youth’s 
ceaseless friendship…
The past’s agony…kept 
obscure…by the fabricated 
contentment…burns the torn 
soul of the angel inside…
The hope that attempts to 
banish the shadow…increased 
by the love of many…shines 
brightly…shrouded by the 
Shadow…of the Sun…
