Under a Shadow – Written December 2011 (Aged 36)

Under a Shadow

i have forgotten –
what it is like –
to not live under this shadow
each day
tumbles past
i would, if i could –
tell you how this feels
we are looking at versions
of how we used to be
i am planning not a thing
and paper hats and party rings –
have been put to one side
everything seem to past
without due remark
we live under this shadow
and this is where we are parked
