Shadow Girl

I walk a twisted path

Made of glass and broken dreams,

And as I walk, pieces of myself

Bleed out through my tears

Left behind as bloody footsteps

Washed away by my rain.

--------------------------

Only shadows remain of the pieces I've lost.

Someday there will be no parts left,

Just a shadow with no soul,

No emotions left to feel.

---------------------------

I long for that day

When all pain fades away,

When scars finally heal,

And stitches and seams are no more

A part of what makes up my heart

Bleeding as it beats within.

----------------------------

Until then, my tears fall from the sky,

My soul breaks and frays,

And pieces of myself melt away.

----------------------------

How many pieces will I lose

Before there is nothing left?

---------------------------

I can't help but wonder

If I've already

Reached

The end.
