Chasing Shadows

Tags: aching, burning, tears,
I am chasing shadows
Of an unwanted past.
It leaves me shattered 
And wandering,
Alone
In the dark.

I am afraid to fill
The deep void,
Burning
Inside my aching soul.

I have shielded 
My dented heart
For so long,
And left it
Withering away,
In darkness.

I am searching 
For something.
Forever wishing 
For more 
Than this.

I have felt the heat 
Of unbridled lust
And ferocious need.
But it left me,
Cold, 
And waiting.

I close my eyes
And let the winter
Embrace me 
As I surrender,
Letting the chill
Crystallize 
My burning tears.

Well said. I think at some time or the other we all chase shadows because of problems in the heart. Thank you for this piece that is a bit different perhaps from your normal offerings. You continue to write very well. "5"+++

Reminds me of an old saying, "Once Burned, Twice Shy". Very well put Blue.
