Underneath The Shadows

The dogs were barking
as I sat upon the road
to watch the roar of life
and to catch a glimpse
of sunrise.

What else could one boy do
but say her name aloud
and wash away the blues
then run away somewhere
to find the brightest light
hidden deep –
just underneath
the shadows.

It was only when…..
I breathed in the smoke
and felt my feet aflame
that it would be the last time –
I’d say her name
and recognise
the feel of hopelessness
I could rise again
to find the love of mine
one day.
