The Shadow of the Light

The Shadow of the Light

A Poem by Aiden Alyx

the tears fall down and crash into oblivion
an empty abyss of tortured thoughts
confusion in her mind
her body of ice and snow
the eyes of the dead dearly departed
the name of regret
she sees her final breath
in the cold of the air that she breathes
twenty stories up
twenty floors of light
overpowering the shadow snow angel
the tears of blood
shatter at her feet
as she remembers her past
call the angel
but she will not come
this fate is hers
scream as her wings are ripped from her ice
cry as her shaking body steps
and closer
to the edge
which did we see?
the light?
or the shadow that outlines it?
the shadow of the light gives in
as the concrete rushes upto meet her
we always looked for light
but now are forever blinded
by that which we seek
