Lingering (Annette Redmond Walters-Lafayette, LA)


A shadow of your soul
Does so constantly remain
Enveloping me whole
Within my empty domain

I've dusted off the past
Scrubbed away the injuries
But never does it last
And still bide your courtesies

I covet what lingers
Of your sweetest suggestion
The tips of your fingers
That has left your impression

I know this too shall fade
And your traces left behind
Will grow a lighter shade
Become dimmer in my mind

But never will you die
Since always will I hold you
As my dearest ally
And I hope you'll know it's true

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
