Flickering Light

Once you showed your shadow to me,
I roamed your cell and watched, quietly
as silent plans, began to emerge.  That 
urge to be free, that surge of complexity
was uncomfortable for me. Eventually,
that thread of hope was cut into pieces.

Flickering light, shattering, like prisoners,
reflecting,  gathering those pieces and
holding them tight.  A line of sight, two
sided, something not right, despite the
will to survive, the cell has divided itself,
half light pulses, the memory transposes…

Flickering light, shadows of hope return to fear,
pieces of thread, washed away, shed like a tear.
