Shadows

leaves

I sit
As the wind gusts around me
Wet, sullen skies frantic, hurrying
Washed in silver light.

And I sit
Overwhelmed and lost in another lifetime
While the dead leaves skitter and blow
Bodies tossed in the storm.

And I sit
Wishing they could rest
Not knowing why
Just that these are
Shadows of words
My heart feels.
