Gap

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook Post to Google Buzz Send Gmail

a gap in time
between the start
and the end
a gap where
childhood withered
personality died

darkness
without end
and silence
where fun
and laughter
should overflow

what fills
the void?
emptyness?
or pain untold?
no one knows
how scars unfold

but here i am
trapped
in the glass box
light all around
casting fearful shadows
and darkness inside

from pain
is borne anger,
from anger
guilt,
and this guilt
is father to all pain

time without end
have i failed
to impress
and i slip
in the gap
between adult and child

like a shadow i run
silent and swift
