” GLASS SHADOWS “~by Martin Gedge



POEM ” GLASS SHADOWS ” by martin gedge

Image may contain: 1 person

Passing shadows in a frame

reflections in the mirror

memories in a life I’ve been

to footsteps leading here

ghosts that haunt my every move

to check inn side my brain

marks upon my flesh and skin

while breathing down each vein

blind to all of what I see

this ageless fool in time

waiting for the rush of blood

to flood of every line

I’m not the host or chosen one

that walks this deadly ground

but the invasion of the earth

beyond the light and sound

this face I show is unlike yours

but signs of ancient grey

to watch a million souls deceased

and vanish in decay

the skies are lit like fireflies

the worlds about to bust

a strange advance in atmosphere

to blow away like dust

and in the distant whispered still

for darkness shall inform

that without doubt the lights go out

you wait the coming storm…
