To one man who may be concerned...

Curly dark secrets
Propped against a coffee mug
Fathomless caverns
~
He had moved to a new place
No one should find him
~
He had closed the door
The windows wore blinds
~
He chose to carve a new life
Without prison bars
~
He had lost a love
Or did love lose him
~
But shadows wander
Shadows haunt the subconscious
Letters are shadows
~
Unopened war wounds
The letter sat before him
His mother reaching
~

To one man who may be concerned...
