Morning Left Waiting

I lost my shadow

in the hills of pain

and wandered in darkness

chasing in vain


I lost my shadow

 the sun took flight

morning left waiting

adrift in the night


I lost my shadow

wolves distant howl

tracking my torment

whose grief I prowl


I lost my shadow

and then my name

connection severed

—myself to blame
