A Poem To My Shadow - Poem by jathin aka jesuzz

Walk aside me my silhouette, for I am alone
Drown me in your tears, for I cease to feel
Blind me with your love for I saw too much
in his mock show of a life; I lost
all I love. In you my dreams sank; my hopes faded

for you my soul I searched; for you
my conscience I sold,
for you all providence I fled; for you
for you a mother, strangled; for you a father, stabbed
killed her love, stained his honor
then why ‘o’why this treason?
Tell me with those lips, I so felt
Pray, any good reason!

Slipshod in the ship of life,
With you strong at the helm why any trepidation
You will steer me, was always the notion
all through ocean, all through time.
Like a cruel first light bath on a sleeping child,
you or destiny, woke me up; only to find
a ghost ship ripped of its crew

In the grey solitude of my winter dreams
I stood in the cemetery of broken hearts;
To the tomb of of our love I clung.
My eyes dry, heart cold, filled only with repugnance
on no account for u, but for
the image of who I used to be.

Deserted by all, but one or duality
Alas so cruel or kind the fate. I know not
They said I was their child, I was welcome
To the open doors of my house
To the secure shadow of my dad
To the silent love of my mom.

‘ Oh lord thy need no assurance,
For u know
the cry of my severed soul
the beats of my sinned heart
the Stigma of my blasphemy

True love from a lover?
I know not what u speak of.
For I have felt it only in their arms, those in
which I grew so so big, so foolish, so wise
wise enough, to tell it to you
