Through shadows and tears we look back at what was.
Shadows are a reflection of what we once were
and maybe still are
and maybe will always be.
No one ever changes.
Or can they?
Tears are a reflection of regrets
and dreams that never came true.
But can they still?
Shadows and tears wash over each other
like murky grey watercolors
that have no color,
no life to speak of.
The dark night that is the past
fades into light,
and we start over again,
until the shadows and tears are no more.
