To quote John Cleese: And now for Something Completely Different..
Back to the Shadows
In late fall, the early snow
On narrow streets of cobblestone
With memories only he would know,
A man walks and walks alone.
And from the clouds, a somber glow,
Shatters his heart, no longer stone,
He struggles to leave, to let her go,
A church bell rings, a saddening tone.
He walks on still, eyes kept low,
Back to the Shadows, to remain unknown.

That was written over 20 years ago. Seems like a lifetime, back when I thought I could write poetry. I remember why I wrote it, I was trying to get over a crush I had on someone in high school. A long time ago, on another continent.
