Shadow

…and all I could see were footprints of ash,
The maps you’d drawn,
All over my skin…
In every direction,
Though none led to you… 
They vanished with every touch…
Left no trace…
No clue to where you now roam.
I smiled…
Nothing mattered, all demons had fled…
My chaos, destruction,
Your insanity…
All flames extinguished,
Only embers remain.
I’d had dangerous paths I needed to cross,
Broken bridges that had to be burned…
You were a warrior at my side,
A fearless knight to guide my road…
Without your madness,
Your fire in the dark,
Without your shadow to hold tight to,
I’d never have found my way…
