Dark Shadows Linger.


Dark Shadows Linger.    


We are still there,
even though they may have
torn down the bricks,
and leveled the ruins
where we were burned into obscurity,
in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Women and babies,
tiny children evaporated
in a nuclear flash,
leaving only an imprint
on the buildings where
we cowered in fear.

dark shadows linger in
the souls of men
haunting all,
whose fingers set near the buttons
of any new destruction.

Our shadows loom,
we are human shapes burned
into concrete walls,
study the still life
that reveals the art of death...
and paint no more.
