Part Vi: Silence - Poem by Juge Sopczak

After the passing of many nights
the shadows ceased to follow me.
The density of night returned
and the sun, less brighter than before.
The hunger had grown less
leaving a desire for more.
Eyes that would recognize mine
as I'd wander through the streets
now look away from me
as if I have been shunned
from some secret society.

Everything has changed.

Oh how I longed to see again
with those borrowed eyes!
To belong to that darkness
that had once consumed me!
But there I was, walking alone as before
but more so.
What had I done so wrong?
Was it some belief I had lost? or gained?
What deity or demon would be so cruel
to make me suffer like this?
To show me a world like no other,
to desire things so wrong yet so right,
to deny me the permanence of being
what they had made me.
Torturing me with the want of having
what I was once so frightened of,
I look to the shadows
but they no longer know
my souless face.
Light has been denied me
only to be abandoned by that
all consuming dark.

No one echos my loneliness.
Where I go only silence follows.
