so much better in silhouette
fine lines blurred at the edges
only the vague form can be detected
but for those looking closely
there remains sharp sadness
and great gaping holes of loss and doubt
but mostly people will see
a figure in all its regularity, lacking a spark
but it’s there! just sift through cobwebs and look
there will be cutting remarks and caustic wit
to keep out interlopers
but secretly arms are open wide
waiting to be filled
and filled with something good
it can be so hard when someone else holds the timepiece
to move anywhere but backwards
there is a path leading to joy
with stops at denial and forgiveness
not for others, just for the observer
let go and breathe deeply the simple silhouette
will shadow your whole journey
embrace then leave when you let go
