Castaway Shadows

Castaway Shadows
by Carl Josehart

Castaway shadows
from a shipwrecked past
swirl menacingly around
while trapped in my head

Old discarded remnants
of a life long since disowned
split off from my present reality
never quite forgotten – never wholly unknown

Apparitions of foreboding
hauntingly remind me of who I have been
while reflecting off the future
the silhouette of who I’ve become
intermingling with

castaway shadows
