Run as I try to leave

Behind all that I have

Been

Shadows they do follow

Me revealing

Where what I have seen

In darkness they do

Hide and in daylight

They do flourish

To bring constant reminders

Of the desire to

Be punished for those

Crimes of the heart

To have restless nights

Keeping souls apart

From a reality confined

To dreams that none

Do see

Until the dawn of day

When swiftly swept

Away is the imagination

Of time
