My shadow walks ( a tribute to - Tool )

By molock

My shadow walks  ( a tribute to - Tool )

My shadow walks,
...unforgiven.
i follow it,
'til the end.
each step leads 
to the next,
with the devil as my
witness,
....i embrace this
darkness within...

it was there,
burnin' crosses.
i looked into the
flames,
...only to see the
faces of those
forgotten.
my shadow walked
into the darkest day....

i can not reconcile
with my conscience.
to it i am always a 
slave.
as i drift deeper into
this darkness,
...i swear
i will not be afraid.

my shadow walks,
without hesitation...
i follow it,
into the arms of
 deception...

my shadow walks,
without direction...
feeling this darkness 
inside of me 
...wearing my skin.

it was there,
burnin' crosses.
i looked into the
flames,
...only to see the
faces of those
forgotten.
my shadow walked
into the darkest day...

    Attempting another comment since the last on went poof ! - when I submitted it and lost my connection. Very creepy visual presentation amigo. Some of those faces will never be forgotten, and were given immortality in our conscience. Be thankful if you have one since some don't, and never will. Guilty or otherwise. Cheers! - Dan

    The image was eerily unexpected. The poetry, a glimmer in the shadows.
